Rangers star indirectly fumes at the SFA in defiant social media post

Rangers star Kemar Roofe has indirectly responded to the SFA charge which could see him banned for two games following a challenge on St. Johnstone’s Murray Davidson.

Roofe was yellow carded at the time but following yet another media backlash the SFA have decided to cite the striker for the challenge.


Taking to Instagram, Roofe simply responded to the incident with an angry face emoji as his frustration over the decision became evident.

The forward would also share images of a bad tackle he was on the receiving end of against Standard Liege in the Europa League and another by Liam Gordon in a previous match with St. Johnstone.

Gordon’s challenge – a full-force lunging slide – only saw yellow but it’s clear the defender should’ve probably walked in the 3-0 Rangers win over St. Johnstone in August.

Rangers fans are up in arms about the citation which came only a week after striker Alfredo Morelos was banned for three games for a clash with Hibs defender Ryan Porteous.

For Rangers fans, the issue isn’t with citing players under the retrospective disciplinary process but rather with a lack of consistency in it.

Gers fans feel trial by media is driving much of the SFA’s decision-making in this regard and Roofe’s frustration only serves as further evidence that fans, players and everyone associated with the game are growing impatient with its governance.

Rangers are yet to make a decision on whether or not to appeal the charge but whether they do or not, is it time for tangible change in the disciplinary process in Scotland?
