Since arriving at Rangers on loan in January, Jermain Defoe has enjoyed a fantastic spell of form.
Does James Tavernier get too much criticism?
The former England striker has been an instant hit at Ibrox, and managed to score six goals and rack up five assists in just 12 Scottish Premiership games at the end of the 2018/19 campaign (via Transfermarkt).
This season he has got even better, and after just 14 matches in all competitions he has already helped himself to 12 goals, including hat-tricks against both Hibernian and Hamilton Academical (via Soccerbase).
Defoe is currently at Ibrox on a temporary deal from AFC Bournemouth, which is due to expire in 2020.
However, in a recent interview with Sky Sports the 37-year-old admitted that he was keen to stay in Glasgow beyond that point.
Given how many goals he has scored since his arrival, it would be a surprise if the club didn’t want to keep hold of the player. One thing is for sure though, the Rangers fans certainly want the ex-Sunderland striker to remain at Ibrox beyond this season.
Here is what some Gers fans had to say about Defoe potentially staying at the club on Twitter…
@IAmJermainDefoe should stay with us until the end of his career, what an amazing guy to have at the club 💙

Keep him till he retires then get him coaching all the young strikers coming through at the club, not only is he a great striker, but he’s a top professional and you can see the affect he’s had on morelos already nevermind what he could teach the youths

Usually I’d be sceptical over signing a 38 year old but the wee man is different class. Could easily go another 2 years I reckon. Get it done Rangers 🤙🏻
