Rangers striker Kemar Roofe has enjoyed a very comfortable start to life at Ibrox and the £3.5m summer signing [Scottish Sun] once again got himself on the scoresheet against Aberdeen.

Roofe, 27, scored the second goal in the 4-0 win, taking down a superb Connor Goldson pass with a beautiful touch and taking advantage of some hesitant Aberdeen defending to dribble into space.

The ex-Anderlecht and Leeds United forward would then get a shot away which would come off Don goalkeeper Joe Lewis before rolling into the back of the net.

It was Roofe’s sixth goal in a Rangers shirt in eleven matches, with five of those games coming from the bench.

The striker have five in eight in the Scottish Premiership as this talented, diminutive forward settles into his groove quickly at Ibrox.

Both in Scotland and in Europe Roofe has looked like a talented option who offers something completely different to what we’ve had under Steven Gerrard.


A direct, technically skilled footballer who operates at pace and with neat link-up play and intelligent movement, Roofe has bounced back from a difficult spell in Belgium to find a new home in Glasgow.

Rangers clearly identified long-term target Roofe as a player who could flourish in their system and the early signs suggest it will prove a superb piece of business for the Ibrox club.

The player also gave a post-match interview to Sky Sports and claimed the club’s lead in the Scottish Premiership “means nothing until the end of the season”.

Rangers fans have been giving their verdict on the player after he played another hugely influential role in the club’s 4-0 win over Aberdeen at Ibrox and praised his post-match comments.


Roofe’s emergence at Ibrox gives Rangers boss Steven Gerrard a real selection headache with the forward’s form making it very difficult to leave him out of the side.

The striker’s performance wasn’t the only thing which caught the eye of Rangers fans either – the club’s supporters were also very impressed with a Rangers legend’s off-field performance in the win over the Dons.
