Former England striker Jermain Defoe has been banned from driving for six months after being caught speeding.

The 40-year-old was clocked on December 28, 2020, traveling at 56 mph in a 30 mph zone in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire.

The Glasgow Justice of the Peace was told Defoe was behind the wheel of a Range Rover at the time.

District Attorney Ryan Watson said the attacker was snared by a speed camera on Mill Street in the area at around 11pm.

The ex-England international – who also played for West Ham, Rangers, Tottenham and Sunderland – pleaded guilty to the single charge of speeding.

Defensively, Paul Mullen stated, “He apologizes to the court for a temporary error of judgment.”

The lawyer added that Defoe, then from Bearsden, East Dunbartonshire, dropped off an unnamed colleague and was unfamiliar with the area.

It was revealed that Defoe already had 11 demerits on his license.

JP Marchment added a further four points to the offense, which would see him banned from driving for six months under the tally procedure.

The former footballer, who now lives in Chigwell in Essex, was also fined £480.

The Crown accepted not guilty to a separate 75-mph speeding violation in a 50-zone.

According to allegations, on April 9, 2022, Defoe was driving the M74 in Glasgow’s Polmadie behind the wheel of another Range Rover.

Defoe already had previous traffic violations. He was banned from the road in 2009 and a year later faced court for being caught with a phone while driving.

In March 2022, Defoe announced his retirement from football at the age of 39.

The football star recently made headlines for divorcing his wife just months after their £200,000 marriage.

He married Donna Tierney on June 4, but the couple didn’t spend Christmas together – Defoe spent the holidays in St. Lucia while Donna stayed home in Glasgow.

They both deleted pictures of their wedding from Instagram and Donna started using her maiden name again.
