Davis volleyed past Jussi Jääinen to win a 2–2 home draw against Bolton Wanderers on August 13, 2005, Villa's first game of the new season. Villa defeated 8–3 at Wycombe Wanderers on September 20th in the third round of the Football League Cup. He scored twice on September 20th. By October 2005, he had been a regular for the club and played only one game for Villa during the 2005–06 season. Davis was named Villa's "Young Player of the Year," "The Fans Player of the Year," and "Player of the Year" for the 2005–06 season. Davis could have been "another Frank Lampard" in his appearance, according to Northern Ireland boss Lawrie Sanchez. Davis made 102 appearances for Villa and scored nine times. He scored the first goal of a 2–1 victory over West Bromwich Albion on January 2, 2006.

Davis went from Aaron Hughes, a teammate of Aaron Hughes, to Fulham on July 5, 2007, a fee of about £4 million. He made his Fulham debut against Arsenal on August 12th and made 22 appearances for Fulham before moving to Rangers.

Davis was signed on a six-month loan by Rangers, the club he supported as a child on 31 January 2008. Davis made his Rangers debut against Panathinaikos in the UEFA Cup on February 13th.

He received the SPL Player of the Month award for his efforts during September 2011. Davis, a former Rangers agent, exercised his right under TUPE legislation to rescind his employment and become a free agent. Players were entitled to become free agents if they objected to PFA Scotland's transfer to the new company, according to PFA Scotland's founder, Charles Green.

Davis turned down the chance to remain with Rangers in favour of a three-year deal with Premier League club Southampton on July 6, 2012. The agreement was subsequently extended to 2016 as part of the deal with Rangers to complete the transfer without the need for the international transfer clearance to be agreed by FIFA, with both clubs agreeing a fee. Davis begged for the Rangers fans to accept his departure, but a minority of followers changed his mind and said he left Rangers in order to resurrect his football career.

He made his debut on 19 August 2012 and scored to put the team ahead of runners Manchester City just three minutes after arriving as a replacement, but Southampton lost 3–2. In a 3–1 home win on February 13, 2013, his only other goal of the season came against the same opposition.

Hearts 0-4 Rangers: Antonio Colak nets a brace as Rangers thrash Hearts at Tynecastle, October 1, 2022
Robbie Neilson was expecting a lot more in this match, but instead it was an all-too familiar Tale of Two Cities. The Hearts manager's solid pre-match prediction of a home victory over Rangers was presumably based on a desire to ignite rather than any misguided optimism. Yet, Hearts froze when faced with a chance to not only reel in their opponents on points but potentially redesign them on goal difference. The central divide between the Premiership's Glasgow clubs and their Edinburgh opponents was also revealed, as the Premiership's Glasgow clubs were formerly disadvantaged. Hearts are hardly a club of Dickensian poverty and their radical fan-ownership scheme, while European ambitions point to a better and more promising future.

Despite Lavery's victory, Greece 3-1 in Northern Ireland: visitors are disappointed with another Nations League loss, September 27, 2022
CHRIS WHEELER: Northern Ireland's only good news on a hot and tumbling night in Athens was that they had escaped the threat of Nations League relegation. Despite capitulating to Greece at the Georgios Kamaras Stadium, Cyprus' 5-1 loss to Kosovo saved Ian Baraclough's side from the disappointment of finishing last in Group C2 in Group C2. Northern Ireland is now set to drop into pot five for the Euro 2024 draw next month, meaning they will face a much tougher qualifying group on the road to Germany.

PLAYER RATINGS: McGregor produced a vintage display but Sands blotted his copybook with red card, September 15, 2022
After losing 3-0 at Ibrox, where penalties were the game's turning point, ten-man Rangers were left searching for their first Champions League point. Allan McGregor, a returning goalkeeper, saved a retaken Piotr Zielinksi spot-kick on the hour after Gers defender James Sands was shown off conceding it before being defeated from 12 yards by Matteo Politano in the 67th minute. Giacomo Raspador finished with a second with five minutes remaining, and Tanguy Ndombele grabbed a third to add to Gers' misery.
