Sunderland fans react as Jermain Defoe is spotted at the Stadium of Light

Defoe’s 37 goals in a red and white shirt clearly still live long in the memory of the club’s supporters.

In a period where turmoil has been a buzzword around the Stadium of Light, Jermain Defoe offered Sunderland light at the end of a dark tunnel.

The former England striker was prolific during this time with the club, despite their struggles.

He netted a solid 37 goals in 93 appearances for the Black Cats before joining Bournemouth in 2017.

Now 36, Defoe is strutting his stuff on loan at Rangers where he has six goals in 15 appearances.

He took time out last night, however, to cast an eye over Sunderland during their League One fixture against Burton Albion.

The veteran striker was snapped at the Stadium of Light watching Jack Ross’ team as they moved into the automatic promotion places with a 1-1 draw.

Defoe is still massively popular in the north-east.

The club’s media time snapped him in the stand and supporters took to Twitter to welcome Defoe back to his former home.
