Jermain Defoe scored for Rangers again this weekend and the fans are loving his form in the early stages of the campaign.
The 36-year-old scored his side’s only goal in the 1-1 draw with Championship side Blackburn Rovers, but his opener was cancelled out by a Lewis Travis strike from 12 yards for Tony Mowbray’s side.
The friendly goal now means that the Englishman has five goals in five games for Steven Gerrard’s side since returning from pre-season. Strikes against Oxford United, Marseille, St. Joseph’s and now Blackburn mean the forward is on fire going into the new season.
As well the goals in the pre-season matches and the Europa League tie, Defoe scored the winner in a behind-closed-doors game this summer. His first-half opener was the only goal of the game against the Welsh side TNS.
Alfredo Morelos has of course been linked with an exit from Ibrox, so Defoe’s goalscoring prowess could well prove to be absolutely crucial this season.
While it’s only pre-season and St. Joseph’s of Gibraltar, the veteran striker’s form has got these Rangers fans very excited indeed…
Hes on fire

Defoe could easily hit 30 this season. Finishing is class.

Yes mate , Without a doubt, His movement and finishing is the best in the country, IMO?

He could score as many as he wants, not having this “Defoe can be our main striker” talk though, him and Alfredo are the lethal firepower we need for 55

Frightening the though of the combined goals him and Alfie will score this season (if Morelos stays)
