Mark Hughes has been sacked by Southampton after just one win in their opening 14 games of the Premier League season.The Saints have slipped into the relegation zone and dropped a two-goal lead against Manchester United on Saturday.
That left Southampton in third-to-last place in the standings with more than a third of the season gone and in something of a crisis, having also parted company with vice chairman Les Reed and technical director Martin Hunter last month as part of a restructuring.
Davis, who played over 300 times for the club, will lead them into a hard encounter at Wembley on Wednesday as they face Tottenham in the Premier League.
He kept Rovers up and also took them to a rare FA Cup semi-final appearance in his first season, before a sixth-place finish the following year took the club back into Europe.

As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Murphy said. The opening play of the fourth quarter was a flawless example of Green Bay's offensive struggles. "Like I said, it's tough".
"First team assistant coach Kelvin Davis will lead the team for Wednesday's Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley". The high point was December 2015, when a front three of Marko Arnautovic, Xherdan Shaqiri and Bojan Krkic inspired the Potters to 2-0 home victories over both Manchester clubs.
Their only victory came on September 1, at Crystal Palace, and Hughes exits with a win ratio of just 19.2 percent. Former Swansea City, Leicester and Fiorentina manager Paulo Sousa is the early favourite to replace Hughes with the Portuguese having left Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian in the summer.
"I have got some time period between now and the game and also it's not about drumming things into them and psyching them up and trying to make them too different from what they are", said Davis.
Hughes's successor is set to be the club's fourth manager in two years.
