Bournemouth’s Jermain Defoe set to join Rangers on 18-month loan deal

While Rangers may be signing Defoe under false pretences, there are reports that the striker also has a misguided impression of the club he has joined.

"A friend of mine called on Thursday afternoon after the decision was announced and said, "I know there are all these conspiracies in Scottish football, but letting Morelos off just makes it looks like the SFA want Rangers to win the league"."

The 36-year-old has played at the top level throughout his career as he has turned out for the likes of West Ham United, Tottenham, Portsmouth and Sunderland and his wages were thought to be a major stumbling block to any potential move.

Rangers are really making waves at the moment and it is certainly more than exciting to see what we're trying to achieve. "They could push Celtic all the way with those two in the team".

"We understand that Jordan Jones and Glen Kamara have been having medicals with Rangers today with a view to signing pre-contract agreements", Shanley said.

"He scored some massive goals for us previous year, I don't think anyone should forget that".

"He'll be a real big signing for Glasgow Rangers and I'm sure Stevie [Gerrard] will be delighted to have him".

Jermain Defoe made his England debut in 2004 and has made 57 appearances, scoring 20 goals, including three appearances and a goal at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Callum Wilson and Joshua King [have] both been outstanding so [Defoe] hasn't got the games.
"He wants to play, he's one of them boys". Celtic have a game in hand over Gerrard's side.

"The young lad [36-year-old Jermain Defoe] has a bright future [past] ahead of him [behind him]", an insider at Rangers told FourFourTwo.
