Celtic: Fans rush to mock claim that Jermain Defoe has ‘incredible record that rivals Lewandowski’

In what must have a slow news day, The Daily Record has reported that Jermain Defoe has been one of the most effective strikers in Europe this season.

The article goes on to compare Defoe with the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Wissam Ben Yedder and Ciro Immobile, playing in the Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Serie A respectively.
