He’s still got it.

Former Rangers number nine Jermain Defoe has posted a video on Instagram of him playing football with Rangers fans.

In the post, he said was driving his car and spotted the fans playing football so decided to join in with them.

“Just casually stopped the car to have a kick around with some Rangers fans, obviously had to get on the scoresheet”

In the 32 second clip, the former England International can be seen receiving the ball before calmly slotting it into the net with a trademark finish.

Defoe earned a cult hero status at the club after joining on loan from Bournemouth in January 2019 before signing a permanent deal.

He scored an impressive 32 goals in 74 appearances, with his last coming in the memorable 4-0 win against Aberdeen to score the final goal of an invincible league season.

The marksman played a crucial role in helping the club secure their long awaited 55th League Title, not only on the park but off it too, forming special relationships with players such as Alfredo Morelos and Glen Kamara.

At the start of this season, the striker agreed to take up a player-coach role for Steven Gerrard’s side but only managed two appearances before finally being released in January.

He made a return to Sunderland but retired from professional football in March after admitting that his fitness levels weren’t what they used to be.

Speaking to Talk Sport, an emotional Defoe spoke of how the title win meant so much to him and that he was happy to finally achieve his dream with Rangers.

He also explained in the interview that he was in ‘player mode’ during his coaching role at Ibrox and meant he had little time to focus on the coaching aspect of the game.

The striker will go down as an iconic figure in the history of Rangers and it’s nice to see the appreciation he and the fans still have for each other.
