Rangers striker Jermain Defoe got his name on the scoresheet again in the friendly against Blackburn Rovers today – and Gers fans on Twitter were blown away with the veteran’s showing.

After scoring twice in the midweek rout of St. Joseph’s in midweek, Defoe opened the scoring in the clash with Blackburn when he nodded home Jordan Jones’ cross after 30 minutes.

Since arriving at Ibrox in January, Defoe has been constantly among the goals and fans expect that he’ll continue that into the new season and have a big say in the title race.

With Defoe and Morelos both competing to be Steven Gerrard’s main striker, the veteran will have been happy with how he performed against the Championship side.

The Rangers boss hailed Defoe’s involvement in midweek and lauded the qualities he brings to the side and they were on display as he impressed again against Blackburn.


Gers fans were delighted with the on-loan striker – with one admitting he’d have loved to have seen Defoe in G51 years ago.

Here are some of the best comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
