RANGERS star Jermain Defoe has been pictured dining out in a city restaurant which has become a celeb haunt. 

The 36-year-old striker posed with staff at La Lanterna on Great Western Road.

The Italian restaurant shared an image of the player in their West End eatery and said: "What a pairing - our very own Umberto and footballing legend Jermain Defoe!"


The Italian restaurant chain, which also has a city centre base, is a favourite with Scottish celebrities. We reported that Rangers gaffer Steven Gerrard dined there last December. 

In recent months, Wet Wet Wet star Marti Pellow and Hollywood actor Chris Pine have also eaten at the restaurant. 

While Arsenal star and former Hoops player Kieran Tierney visited last month.
