Following the weekend’s 1-1 draw with Ross County at Ibrox, Rangers are now sitting third in the Premiership table, and are a whopping 27 points behind runaway leaders Celtic.
The failure to launch any sort of tangible challenge to their bitter Glasgow rivals this season has seen current boss Warburton take a lot of stick from supporters, and a parting of ways could very well be coming this summer.
Former Motherwell, Derby and Nottingham Forest manager Davies has previously claimed that he was approached about the Rangers gig before Warburton took over in 2015, and now his name is being put back in the frame again on Twitter:
Billy Davies was sounded out for The Rangers job once agian on Friday night, the second time in the last few months he's had that discussion

But rumours that Davies could potentially step into the breach really hasn’t gone down well with Gers fans, with barely any finding a nice word to say about the 52-year-old:
Wid rather eat wasps than have Billy Davies as our next manager

Billy Davies would be enough of an issue that the board would lose a substantial amount of the support's backing. Would hope they know that.

Billy Davies would literally be the worst appointment rangers could ever make. I wish some fans would just shut the fuck up about him

Billy Davies, rejected by Killie and St Mirren, being linked as the next Rangers manager. Barrel being scraped if true.

That seems pretty unequivocal, eh?
Do you think Davies would be such a poor appointment for Rangers? Would he really be that bad?
