Danny Mills lauded the “fantastic pride and a magnificent professionalism” of Steven Davis after the Rangers midfielder became Northern Ireland’s most capped player.
The former Leeds and Manchester City defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, claimed that that the achievement would be “ultra-special” if it can be followed up by qualification for next year’s Euros.
The 35-year-old earned his 120th international cap in Northern Ireland’s penalty shootout victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday night.
