Jermain Defoe joins Steven Gerrard at Rangers on 18-month loan

Northern Ireland's Steven Davis is closing in on his Rangers return

Sources at Rangers have revealed that the club's hierarchy is labouring under the misconception that Jermain Defoe is two decades younger and a foot taller than he actually is.

Now surplus to requirements with Eddie Howe preferring Callum Wilson and Josh King up front, Defoe has been allowed to leave the club on loan and join up with former England teammate Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.

Gerrard has now identified Defoe as the man to bolster his attacking options and an 18-month loan move is very close to being completed as the striker gets set to link up with former England team-mate.

"At the moment I'm still contracted to Stoke but I want to play and hopefully there are opportunities during the [winter] window to play somewhere. As I say, no deal has been finalised, so let's see what happens".

Making his senior team debut in 1999 with West Ham United, Defoe has also spent time with Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth and Sunderland. I'm sure he'll score plenty of goals at Rangers.

CBP said that under its use of force policy, the incident would be reviewed by its Office of Professional Responsibility. The border patrol said they dispersed " smoke, pepper spray and CS gas to a position upwind of the rock throwers ".

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

Defoe has scored goals wherever he's been though he realises he is unlikely to make many starts at Rangers.

Morelos had three separate incidents where he unnecessarily lashed out at Celtic players during the game at Ibrox at the end of December.

Luckily for him, the SFA are an organisation inept at doing their jobs and BACKED their referee over claims he seen all three incidents but felt they didn't require any follow-up or punishment.

He will be itching to play regularly and he needs to now move to a club that is able to offer this to him.
