In a post on his Instagram account, Defoe said: ''Thank you for all your lovely messages. I'm fine, I'm all good. 'I'm just going to go home and rest up. I'm just a little bit in shock but I'm all good.'

The ex-England ace netted 17 times in 36 appearances for Pompey having arrived from Tottenham in 2008.

Defoe joined Steven Gerrard's Gers on an 18-month loan deal from Premier League Bournemouth in January.

He has been in fine form in front of goal this season, netting nine times in 13 appearances for Rangers.
