Jermain Defoe, by his own admission loves scoring goals. This is why he wishes to remain at Rangers, why he wants to play in his 40s, and why Steven Gerrard has discovered never to bother asking if he needs a break…
On the eve of his 37th birthday, Defoe did exactly what hes been performing for almost two years. He for the first time in 10 months shipped Rangers high in their Scottish Premiership ahead of rivals Celtic then, and watched a hat-trick.
It took Defoe to 12 goals in 14 matches this season, and motivated fans to break into the chant that has become common place one of the terraces in Ibrox.
I recall the very first time I scored for Rangers, the fans started singing the tune and I spoke to my mom later. She was just likewow, Defoe tells Sky Sports News.
Getting to know the guy behind the aims is well worth it. Defoe was awarded an OBE in November for his dedication and contribution to football and charity. He dedicated the honour this past year to his friend Bradley Lowery, that passed out from a rare type of cancer.
Manager Steven Gerrard understands all about Defoe. The set are with Defoe deal set to expire, in discussion over a new contract for the striker.
He is said to me he is delighted with how Im playing but not just that, together with how I am around the area with the younger lads, helping everyone, says Defoe. It was nice for him to express that.
Theres little doubt in Defoes thoughts. His loved ones adore life in Glasgow. I need to stay, he says. it is a special football club you feel it.
However, Defoe is looking beyond next year. Asked if he could extend his career into his 40s, Defoe says:The way I feel today, readily.
I do everything right [to prepare matches], that can be easy for me. My retrieval, training, knowing how to handle myself. I do. I think its showing in my performances.
Defoes ability to man-manage himself is hes not discovered working under a former team-mate in Gerrard tough.
If youre a boss you need to become somewhat different, youre the manager, says Defoe. But there is times when he does not say anything because he understands me. There is times when he says to medo you really need a down daya day and break - because he knows I will sayno that I wish to play! . He understands me. Hes my ex-team-mate and that he knows I enjoy scoring goals.
Four wins out of four together with 17 goals scored and conceded on Celtic at the first Old Firm derby of the year since their defeat, Rangers will not have desired the global break to interrupt their momentum. Gerrard has said before faltering year following Rangers spent time on 16, it is too early for title talk, and Defoe has cautioned his team-mates to steer clear.
You dont need to boast about being high in the league, theres still quite a way to go, he says. We have to respect our neighbours, everyone in the league and keep what were doing.
When youre raising the trophy in the end then you can do what you need and correctly celebrate
