Rangers News: Steven Gerrard lauds Jermain Defoe’s form for Rangers

Rangers News: Steven Gerrard has heaped praise on Jermain Defoe after the win against Dundee United.

Rangers hosted Dundee at Ibrox stadium last night. The Gers thrashed the visitors 4-0 and in fact, it was the third big win in a row for the Ibrox side.

Defoe, who came as a substitute in the second half, netted his fifth goal of the season and Gerrard was pleased with the finish after the game (h/t Rangers News):

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

The manager commented that it is a dream for every midfielder to play with the striker. (h/t Rangers News)

“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.”

The former England striker was acquired on an 18-month loan spell from Bournemouth.

Rangers record another big win

Gerrard praised the defenders for achieving five clean sheets in a row.

Glen Kamara opened the account for the Light Blues in the 4th minute which turned out to be his maiden goal of the season.

Alfredo Morelos and James Tavernier also founded the score sheet and the Gers extended their winning streak at Ibrox for the 13th time.

Gerrard had a tough time last week suffering back to back draws against Kilmarnock and St. Johnstone.

However, the return of the Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos from a ban helped the Light Blues to secure a comprehensible win over Killie in the Scottish Cup 5th round replay.
