Rangers manager Steven Gerrard
Defoe joined Rangers on an 18-month loan deal from Premier League outfit Bournemouth in January 2019.
The former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United striker is out of contract at Bournemouth in the summer of 2020.
Rangers manager Gerrard has said that an announcement on the future of Defoe is imminent, stating that it will be a “big statement”.
Gerrard told The Scottish Sun about Defoe: “I’m expecting some good news to be announced, it’s just about the final details. That’s a big statement and that will make me happy.”
It would make a lot of sense, as the 37-year-old is a very good striker who has done well at the Gers so far this.
Rangers are aiming to win the Scottish Premiership title this season, and are also in the knockout rounds of the Europa League.
