Rangers duo Tom Lawrence and Kemar Roofe are in the headlines today after Michael Beale announced a devastating injury update.

The 42-year-old revealed that he will be without Lawrence until the end of pre-season after the 29-year-old underwent another operation.

In regards to Roofe, Beale claimed that the Jamaica international has a calf issue which simply won’t go away.

It has been a nightmarish campaign on the injury front for both forwards – who have rarely been available for Rangers – and their absence hasn’t been cheap for those at Ibrox.

How much Rangers have paid Tom Lawrence and Kemar Roofe per appearance

With Lawrence now out for the remainder of the season, the Wales international will end the campaign with just nine appearances to his name.

Salary Sport claim that Rangers pay their No.11 a salary of £22,000-a-week in Glasgow.

Bearing in mind Lawrence arrived at Ibrox on Friday 8th July, the Welshman has been at Rangers for 34 weeks now, meaning he has received £748,000 in wages.

Divide that by his nine appearances, and the Wrexham-born forward has cost Rangers £83,111 per outing at this moment in time.

In regards to Roofe, the 30-year-old has only managed to make six appearances this season.

Salary Sport believe the Rangers No.25 earns slightly more than Lawrence at £26,000-a-week.

From the first game of the campaign, a 2-1 Scottish Premiership win over Livingston on Saturday 30th July, up until now, it has been 31 weeks, in which time Roofe has received £806,000.

Therefore, the Walsall-born striker’s six appearances this term have cost Rangers £134,333.

That is a lot of money to be paying two players who rarely feature, to say the least.

Beale must hope that the pair return to action quickly, as they are not leaving Ibrox anytime soon.

Lawrence is contracted to Rangers until June 2025, whereas Roofe’s deal expires in June 2024.

Hopefully, the duo can avoid injuries in the 2023/24 campaign, as Rangers desperately need them fit and firing.
