Rangers striker Jermain Defoe promised teammate Scott Arfield he’d help him score a hat-trick during Sunday’s convincing win away to Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership.

Defoe unselfishly passed to the attacking midfielder in the second half when he had the opportunity to shoot himself, ensuring that the Gers secured a second 3-0 victory in a row.

After the match, the veteran striker revealed he was simply following through on a promise made at half-time.

As quoted by The Scottish Sun, Defoe said: “It is the first time I have ever passed in the box. I said to him at half-time I would try and help him get his hat-trick. I would like to think he would do the same for me.”

Given the forward’s time at Rangers will ultimately be judged on the goals he scores, it was a terrific bit of team-focused football and a reminder to players like Alfredo Morelos that the good of the club always comes ahead of personal glory or feelings.

Fans have been impressed by Defoe’s recent displays since replacing the Colombian in the team due to suspension, with many predicting the 22-year-old may find it tough to regain his place.

Is Defoe’s all-round game more beneficial to Rangers than Morelos? Have your say in the comments below…

  • Either of any bring it and them on… Another doddle of a campaign.. We celtic stuttered midway.. But even a crap totally crap celtic team at moment doing treble trebles etc shows the state rangers are in… Get well soon rangers is my point we need to. Be pushed like the old days.. And with a right good decent rangers support and some decent investment and decision making I’m sure they will be back up in our faces to stop, our riot… Ffs I hope so I really do..

  • The Sceptics full of wind and p*sh as usual.
    A right good good decent Rangers support????? we can fill our stadium every week unlike you lot.
    Get well soon, you lot will be needing that next year
    Different proposition next year for you lot new manager, a team rebuild and Lawwell still with the buscuit tin mentality, players will be sold that`s your business model, your biggest asset Teirney, sold to the highest bidder, Sinclair is gone, Forest and McGregor will probably meet up again with wee Jazz hands Brenda
    Don`t worry about our investment you worry about yours remember you have the Co-op to pay back in July who is your new banker gonna be? I take it there will be more deflection by the mob
    Be careful what you wish for
