Rangers star Kemar Roofe has hilariously roasted his Ibrox teammate Jermain Defoe on Instagram.

Roofe has been away on international duty with Jamaica but was subbed off 74 minutes into the Reggae Boyz’s 1-1 draw with El Salvador on Saturday due to injury.

The problem ensured he wasn’t going to be available for another qualifier against USA on Tuesday and as a result, he was sent home early.

Defoe was also away from Glasgow during the international break, but the forward was a little closer to base in London.

He worked as a pundit on ITV’s coverage of England vs Albania at Wembley and on Tuesday, he informed his followers on Instagram of an event he had attended prior to the match.

“Happy to be invited as part of the FA International Player to Coach Programme to join UEFA Pro Licence & Technical Directors Alumni at the latest CPD event at Wembley on Friday, ahead of @England’s World Cup Qualifier against Albania.”

Defoe posted a photo from the event that showed him alongside around 20 other individuals, including Leighton Baines and David James.

It didn’t take long for Roofe to come up with a comment that roasted his Ibrox teammate, though.

‘You are too old to be wearing trainers now bro look at your peers, you need to be wearing the stiff leather shoes,’ he replied, alongside four laughing emojis.

The response went down well with Rangers fans, some of whom shared screenshots on Twitter.


Defoe later responded, writing: ‘@roofe u joker I look about 25’.

Rangers fans will be hoping that Roofe shakes off his injury problem to be available for Sunday’s Premier Sports Cup semi-final against Hibernian, but Defoe is unlikely to feature in the game.

The 39-year-old is still registered as a player but has only made one appearance so far this season and is part of the interim coaching team that’s taking training until a new manager is appointed.

There may be uncertainty about who’ll be taking charge of Rangers on Sunday but the referee has been confirmed for the clash.
