Former Premier League striker Kevin Campbell has suggested Glasgow Rangers could crush Jermain Defoe’s dream of a new contract at Ibrox.
Campbell discusses Defoe future
However, speaking to Football Insider, Campbell has suggested the 55-time Scottish champions could decide against giving him a new deal. He said:
“I’m sure he’ll want to sign a new deal, it just depends on whether the club wants to.
“That’s the most important thing, if the club wants it to happen and the player wants it to happen then it will happen.
“If the club don’t want it or the club don’t see it as a good decision then obviously he’ll struggle.”
One more year
Although Defoe has struggled with injuries throughout this season, he has still managed five goals in 15 games, taking his tally to 30 strikes in 67 matches since moving north of the border. He mentioned recently that he would like to play another season so that he can perform in front of supporters, and he has earned the right to do so.
Should Defoe stay at Rangers?
The former England international is one of the few players in Steven Gerrard’s squad to possess previous Champions League experience, which should come in handy as the Gers aim to qualify for the group stages next term. A new deal should therefore be a no-brainer for Ross Wilson and co.
