Defoe joins Rangers on an 18-month deal.

The signing of the 36-year-old is a huge boost for Steven Gerrard’s men, who for the first time in a number of years are in a legitimate title tussle.

“I’m delighted to be able to welcome Jermain to Rangers. He is an exceptionally talented striker and vastly experienced footballer who has scored goals at every club he has played for,” Gerrard said.

“We look forward to integrating him into the squad whilst we work in Tenerife over the next week.”

Rangers director of football Mark Allen added. “It’s really helpful to get work on this front done early in the transfer window because it means we should be able to hit the ground running after the winter break. I believe that is vitally important,”

Defoe began his career at Charlton before going on to play for West Ham, Tottenham, Portsmouth, Toronto and Sunderland, scoring more than 200 goals.
