''Let's Bring That Trophy Home, Boss'' - Rangers And Celtic Fans Lose Their Minds At Latest Tweet From Jermain Defoe

Jermain Defoe And Steven Gerrard Have Been Reunited At Rangers
Jermain Defoe And Steven Gerrard Have Been Reunited At Rangers

Rangers have confirmed the signing of Jermain Defoe on an 18-month loan deal from Premier League side Bournemouth and the new addition has wasted no time in endearing himself to the Ibrox faithful.

The 36-year-old will provide some much-needed firepower for the Scottish Premiership side as they look to maintain their title push, with Steven Gerrard's men currently only behind their old rivals Celtic at the top of the table on goal difference (albeit Celtic do have a game in hand).

Rangers are as short as 7/2 to win the Scottish title with some bookmakers and the arrival of Defoe has got fans dreaming. 

The forward swiftly laid down the gauntlet to his teammates by tweeting 'Let's bring it home, boss', alongside an image of him and Gerrard celebrating an England goal together. It will be interesting to see if the pair can enjoy more success with Gerrard now his manager.

Rangers fans were swift to get very excited on Twitter and they reacted to Defoe's tweet with unbridled joy...

You complete me [@JambaWATP21]

Yasssssssss Welcome to the Worlds most Successful Club to see you scoring goals in a Rangers shirt!! [@Dardony16]

This is the attitude. Welcome Jermain, thanks for coming. Hope you absolutely love it! #55 [@DarrochParkRSC]

The memes accompanying Defoe's original tweet really are a joy to behold, while fans of his former clubs were quick to send messages of support and encouragement...

Good luck Jermaine on your next venture... [@Miss_LFC_]

Good luck! I’m sure the @RangersFC support know what there getting,look after him, and the title is yours! Hope you smash the goals and the league  [@LesCOYS]

Good luck up there - always be a Sunderland hero!! [@tfshippingltd]

Celtic fans were less than impressed with the news that Defoe, who had been linked with a move to Brendan Rodgers' side, would be heading to Ibrox...

There's a reason Celtic wurnae interested. [@seanzo001]

Isn't it already home resting in celtic Park covered in green & white as per usual.strange little man. [@jimmymarsh88]

Jermain Defoe may be getting on in years and his goal output has waned in recent years - after scoring 15 goals in both of the 2016/17 and 2017/18 Premier League campaigns, Defoe scored just four last season - the Rangers fans are clearly starting to believe and are pumped by their newest signing though.

Could this be their year?
