Rangers would make massive statement by signing £3.1m-rated English forward

The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have already forgotten about this season’s failure to contend with Celtic as they look ahead next season under new boss Steven Gerrard.

In what is an exciting time for the club, Steven Gerrard has the chance to put his coaching to use at a massive club like Rangers, a move that could work out well for both parties. With the Englishman likely to scout the market for talent to bring up to Scotland, our punters think the Gers should plot a massive move to bring Jermain Defoe, who is valued at £3.1 million on Transfermarkt, to the club this summer.

At 35 and despite the injury from last season he endured, Defoe is in terrific shape and could be a magnificent signing for Gerrard and his team, as well as a huge statement to hated rivals Celtic. The Englishman scored 4 goals this season for Bournemouth and although he only joined in the summer of 2017, Defoe may be interested in a move to Scotland along with English companion Steven Gerrard.

Everyone knows all too well about Defoe’s terrific goalscoring record and that certainly has the potential to continue with a move to Rangers. Right now, the Gers have a decent team but the summer transfer window is a massive opportunity to show their intent for the new season, proving to Celtic that they aren’t just there to watch them win the league again and again.

Whether the Steven Gerrard appointment will work out for Rangers is unknown but that hasn’t stopped fans getting extremely excited for the future. Jermain Defoe would be a massive addition as well and one that could turn doubters into believers ahead of the 2018/19 season.
