New loan signing Jermain Defoe gives Rangers the "luxury" of playing two up front, says manager Steven Gerrard.

"It's so exciting to have the options because we haven't really had that," Gerrard told Rangers TV.

Rangers have largely played with just one striker this term - Alfredo Morelos leading the line and scoring 20 goals.

Gerrard believes the Northern Irishman could also form a partnership with Defoe as "a target man and a smaller guy around him", adding he now has "four quality forwards" to work with.

But Gerrard says Defoe's arrival from Bournemouth for 18 months and the return of Ryan Hardie from Livingston gives him food for thought in attack.

Gerrard believes the winter break came at the "perfect" time for his squad after an arduous schedule of nine games in December.

Rangers have also signed Steven Davis on loan from Southampton until the end of the season, with his new manager confident he will slot straight into the midfield.
