David Wren, Colin Armstrong and Alec Anderson discussed all things Rangers on the most recent edition of the Gersnet podcast and during the show, the panel spent some time reflecting on the Gers’ 2-2 draw with Hibernian this past weekend. 

They talked about summer signing Kemar Roofe, who was absent from this past weekend’s game, during the show.

Rangers fan? We bet you can't get 100% on this Gers transfer quiz. According to Transfermarkt, the £4.5million signing of which player has been the club's most expensive signing so far this summer?

Roofe suffered an injury in the Gers’ 5-0 Europa League second-round qualifier win over Lincoln Red Imps last week and then didn’t feature for the Glasgow-based club versus Hibernian and during this recent edition of the Gersnet podcast, Armstrong shared that he believes that the £4.05m-rated 27-year-old was “a big miss” for the Glasgow-based club in Sunday’s game.

The podcaster said: “I think Roofe was a big miss today. I think last week, against Dundee United, we started to see what he can offer the team. I thought he was linking up well with [Ryan] Kent and he also worked quite hard.

“On more than one occasion last week, Roofe was back in his own box heading clearances and stuff like that, so he’s a hard-working player who fits in well with us at the moment.

“I question the decision to play him on Thursday night against such a low-level opposition and on an artificial surface. It could have huge implications for Rangers because I think he was starting to look like a very, very good player.”

Have you been impressed by Kemar Roofe this season?





TIF Thoughts…

At present, Roofe is the Gers’ joint-third-highest goalscorer in the Premiership for the 2020/21 campaign and this is despite him having played in fewer games than all of the Rangers players to have scored at least the same number of goals as him in the league this term, so with that in mind, we feel it’s understandable why Armstrong is unhappy that Roofe was absent at the weekend.

Hopefully, for Roofe and for Rangers, the player is not out of action for too long and can get himself back up to speed relatively quickly, in order to pick up where he left off in the league, having scored in his most recent Premiership appearance versus Dundee United.
