Jermain Defoe has settled in superbly in his new home at Toronto FC and with stuff like this it's not hard to see why.

Defoe's new fans seem to be appreciating his goalscoring exploits at BMO Field and have taken to celebrating in an unusual way.

After the Englishman netted his third goal in two games for the Reds at the weekend, the fans rained down - admittedly fake - money from the stands on their newest son and clinical finisher.

The 60th minute finish ended up being enough to win the game for Toronto, endearing him to fans even more.

It's not like Defoe would need his pockets lining any more than they currently are. The former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham striker garnered a pay rise in moving to North America, earning roughly £90,000 a week. 

The Toronto fans are right to be excited about having Defoe - as well as fellow Designated Players Michael Bradley and Julio Cesar.

The Canadian side has regularly been one of the worst sides in Major League Soccer, finishing near the bottom of the table in every single season since joining the league in 2007.

But with their big money acquisitions, they can now boast a perfect record through the opening two games of the season and probably for the first time in their history, are number one in the MLS Power Rankings of all 19 sides.

Big thanks to the MLS sub-Reddit for bringing this to our attention, you can see a GIF of all that counterfeit cash here.
