Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is delighted with the impact of on-loan Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe.

 

Gerrard introduced the former England striker with 24 minutes remaining of Wednesday’s clash with Dundee, and watched as he put the seal on a 4-0 thumping.

 

The 36-year-old’s fifth goal for Rangers is after just six starts and three substitute appearances.

 

Gerrard told RangersTV: “That is what we’ve brought him here for, to score goals.

 

“It doesn’t matter whether Jermain plays 90 minutes or 60 or 30, we want him to be a goal threat, and his movement is fantastic.

 

“I used to love playing with him. He’s a dream for a midfielder because his movement tells you where to play the ball.

 

“It was a great pass from Ryan and a great finish, and he’ll continue to do that if we provide the service for him.”
