Glasgow Rangers: Fans praise Jermain Defoe after club posts footage of him scoring

Glasgow Rangers: Fans praise Jermain Defoe after club posts footage of him scoring - Rangers News

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have been waxing lyrical about Jermain Defoe after the club posted footage of one of the striker’s goals from last season.

The ‘Gers tweeted a video (via @RangersFC) of the 37-year-old’s goal from the 3-0 win away to Hibernian in December 2019, when he latched on to a Scott Arfield header, took a controlling touch to take the ball away from an opposing defender and rifled it into the far corner of the net.

That was one of 17 goals that the veteran striker plundered for Steven Gerrard’s side in 2019/20 and, having been on loan at the time, he has since made his move to Ibrox permanent. Unfortunately, Defoe faces a race against time to be fit for Saturday’s opening Premiership match against Aberdeen, having sustained a hamstring injury in the recent friendly win over Motherwell (as per The Scotsman).
