Rangers have gone and signed up Jermain Defoe on a permanent basis.
The Gers announced earlier on Saturday that Defoe - technically still on loan from Premier League side Bournemouth - would join the club as their player this summer.
The 37-year-old hitman has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Rangers as a Bosman at the end of this season, when his loan expires.
Defoe has been a big hit for Steven Gerrard's side since joining last January, and scored the only goal of the game in midweek to give the Ibrox outfit a win over St Mirren.
Here's how fans of the Glasgow giants reacted to the news:

Can’t argue. Best finisher in the league by a long long way— Craig (@craigmoore1981) January 25, 2020
Rangers fans have every right to be excited, but they'll feel a bit short-changed if this is the only transfer announcement to come between now and the end of this month.
Gerrard's side are five points behind Premiership leaders Celtic - albeit with two games in hand - and they probably need more firepower to compete with the Hoops.
Don't forget that the light Blues are also in the Europa League knockout stages and although they have a big squad, the fixture list could take its toll later in the season.
