Rangers defender Ben Davies insists Liverpool have no regrets

Rangers defender Ben Davies insists he has no regrets about his time with Liverpool.

The center-back did not play a single match with the first team of Jurgen Klopp’s team during his time at the club. Liverpool signed Davies for just 500,000..

When I went to Liverpool I couldn’t get many minutes in the team,” Davies revealed. So when they were putting the team together, doing 30 minutes, 45, 60 and then 90, I was getting five or 10.

So when I went on loan to Sheffield United and then here, I had to go from having five minutes to having 90 minutes.

When you have your off-season break, you’re running, but that was the problem for me because I was running and then running more when I really needed to play a few games so I could keep up.”

Despite failing to make a competitive appearance for the Reds, Davies is not bitter about his time on Merseyside. Instead, he believes that getting a behind-the-scenes look at how things work at one of Europe’s elite clubs allowed him to establish himself so successfully at Rangers.

He said: No, I am grateful for the opportunity and the experience. It opened my eyes to the top level and what the best players do, day in and day out.

It gave me life experience and now, coming to Rangers after that, it definitely helped because I think if I would have come here without that move to Liverpool, it would have been a huge revelation.

What did I take from it? I took from him how elite people and teams in the world operate, how they prepare and the standards that are required across the club.

That rubs off on you even when you’re not playing. You benefit from it. I was facing these guys day after day in training.

“When I was at Preston and playing at Championship level, you had an idea of ​​what it would be like to get to the top. But seeing it first hand was good for me.”
