As we told you this afternoon, ex-England striker Defoe is set to move to Ibrox on an 18-month loan deal from Bournemouth, as Steven Gerrard adds to his attacking options for the second-half of the season.
Rangers are still flying high after a crucial 1-0 win over their bitter rivals on Saturday, in a result which leaves both Glasgow clubs tied at the top of the Premiership table.
But Sutton reckons Defoe’s arrival could tip the title race in Rangers’ favour, as he told his Twitter followers earlier today:
Defoe to Rangers is a game changer… Celtic need to get their finger out…

He’s been a natural goal-scorer throughout his illustrious career but, at 36, is Defoe still the exciting striker needed to topple Brendan Rodgers and Celtic?
