Rangers fans have certainly taken to striker Kemar Roofe and he did his increasing popularity no harm as he donned a retro classic for a special Sky Sports interview.
Roofe, 28, has been an impressive signing for Rangers since the club put up a reported £3.5m investment to bring the forward to Scotland from Belgian side Anderlecht.
The forward has scored some big goals this season – including a potential Puskas Award winner against Standard Liege in the Europa League – and has been bitten by the Rangers bug.
This was no clearer than in the donning of the classic top from between 1992-94 which Roofe bought because it was the Rangers strip being worn from the year of his birth (1993).
It was also a special strip for one Ally McCoist, who alongside Laura Woods interview Kemar on the Sky Sports Super Six Podcast.
It’s the same top McCoist was wearing when he scored against Leeds United – a former club of Roofe’s – in 1992
The striker goes in-depth on the early part of his career, his time at Rangers, and the ongoing defiance over racist abuse in a very intriguing interview.
An intelligent man who speaks very well and is very confident in his abilities, it’ll only embolden Rangers fans even more to the striker and it’s well worth tuning into.
But at first glance it’s the retro Rangers top which catches the eye of Gers supporters who applauded the striker for the kit on Twitter:

Kemar Roofe has been a solid signing for Rangers this season and made a sizeable contribution to the club’s title effort.
In total, Roofe has netted 12 goals with 10 of those coming in the Scottish Premiership alone, despite a couple of injury setbacks throughout the campaign.
The fact Roofe was speaking to Sky Sports suggests the broadcaster has changed tact with regards their coverage of the Ibrox side following a high-profile dispute.
