Twitter Reacts To Gerrard Getting This Marquee Signing Done For Rangers

The wait is finally over! Rangers have officially announced (via club website) the signing of Jermain Defore on an 18-month loan deal from AFC Bournemouth. The 36-year-old veteran is arguably one of England’s most composed finishers over the past two decades, and a glittering 273 goals in 682 club appearances speaks volumes about his illustrious career. He has also netted 20 times in 57 games for the Three Lions and should now enrich the Gers with his enormous experience and ability to lead by example.

The Bears had secured a return to the top tier a couple of seasons back but did not recruit anyone of Defore’s stature in those days. The influence of Steven Gerrard is helping them rebuild for the greater glory and the supporters, longing to end Celtic’s dominance, must be excited in the aftermath of the official announcement.

“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.”

The gaffer did not hold back his excitement, and neither did the player who has already set his objectives before being unveiled at Ibrox.

The fans, too, showed their ecstasy on twitter while welcoming the centre-forward.

The Gers were greeted by a Spurs fan as well who witnessed Defoe’s masterclass during two impressive stints at White Hart Lane.

Steven Gerrard received appreciation for his work as Rangers boss.

All the reactions, however, are not in the player’s favour. One fan has raised his concern over Defoe’s age and cast doubts on the Gers’ transfer policy.

But the majority of supporters are waiting eagerly to witness him representing the Glasgow giants. They would hope to see him settling down at the earliest and guide the Light Blues to snatch the title glory from their Old Firm rivals.
