The midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and has been offered a new two-year deal to stay with Saints.

However, Rangers have been linked with a swoop for the Scotland international after failing with a bid in the summer of 2011 and Davidson is hoping to focus on playing football.

"I am enjoying playing for St Johnstone and the club has been great to me," said Davidson in The Herald. "I get on well with the manager Steve Lomas and the players.

"I have six months left on my contract and I can speak to clubs in January if anything comes up. But all I can do is concentrate on my football and leave the rest to my agent.

"We'll talk further this week. I know some of the details and it is a very good contract offer from the club. If St Johnstone said they didn't want me then I'd have to look elsewhere but it's great to feel wanted.

"The last time there was talk of Rangers it was more of a problem, even just walking down the street and going to the shops. I come from a Rangers family and I'm from a Rangers area so when they put in a bid I got a bit of stick from certain people.

"But I'll just get on with playing. It doesn't matter who you are linked with, you have to be professional enough to get on with your job."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
