Speaking to OK! Magazine, Jermain said that he actually reached out to Donna on social media in 2016, but it wasn’t until years later that they sparked a romance when Donna asked him for a favour.

He said: “We met years ago when I was playing for Sunderland and I messaged her on Instagram. I sent her DM. We had a general chit-chat but hadn’t spoken for ages.

“When I started playing for Rangers in 2019 I remembered Donna was from Glasgow and touched base with her again – I kept looking at her sexy pictures on Instagram. But we didn’t meet until January 2021 when Donna asked if I could give her a signed football shirt for a charity do.”
