RANGERS are back in Ladbrokes Premiership action at Ibrox today with St Johnstone the visitors, and there will be a bumper 84-page programme – with three different cover colours available – on sale outside the stadium in the build-up to kick-off.

Inside, fans can read a great exclusive interview with January loan signing Jermain Defoe.

The 36-year-old striker has played for West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth, Toronto, Sunderland and Bournemouth – but the 57-times capped England star insists he has been blown away by the welcome he has received at Rangers and he wants to give something back to the supporters by winning silverware north of the border.

Also in the programme we catch up with former Ibrox playmaker Thomas Buffel who, at the age of 38, is still playing for Zulte Waregem in Belgium and Billy Kirkwood, who was confirmed as Rangers’ new Loans Manager in October, discusses his role at the Hummel Training Centre and the importance of the loans system for young players trying to make the step up to first-team football and senior players in need of game time.

Also in the programme, Andy Halliday picks the best eleven players he has played with in ‘My Top Team’, Ibrox legend Mark Hateley answers five questions relating to Rangers in ‘5 Quickfire Questions’ and there is another exclusive interview, this time with Andy Little who is feeling positive about his life after football following his retirement from the game at the age of 29.

But that’s not all. In tomorrow’s issue you can read manager Steven Gerrard and captain James Tavernier’s programme notes ahead of the big match against the Saints. There is also On This Day, Match Fast Facts, club historian David Mason’s archive feature, a tricky quiz to test your football knowledge and Junior Gers.

All this and much more can be found in your official 84-page Rangers v St Johnstone matchday programme, price just £3.50.
