Rangers: Noel Whelan wowed by Kemar Roofe injury news

Rangers: Noel Whelan wowed by Kemar Roofe injury news -Rangers News

Noel Whelan has been left delighted by some Glasgow Rangers injury news on Kemar Roofe.

The Lowdown: Fit for Frankfurt?

As cited by football.scotland, Giovanni van Bronckhorst has insisted that the ‘intention’ is to have Roofe fit for the UEFA Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt, with the striker doing ‘everything he can’ to be available.

He has missed their last five games in total over all competitions through injury, ahead of their match at home to Ross County in the Scottish Premiership tonight.

The Latest: Whelan reacts

Speaking to Football Insiderformer BBC pundit Whelan has now been left ‘wowed’ and says it would be a ‘huge boost’ if Roofe can make the final:

“He’s a natural goalscorer. He has picked up the mantle superbly with Morelos out, led the line, and chipped in with some important goals.

“It was unfortunate to see him pick up the injury when he did. But to have him back for the final – wow, what a huge boost for the team and the fans.

“He’ll be doing everything he can to be ready for what is going to be a massive occasion. He’ll be wanting to stamp his authority on the game, and I think he’s got a massive part to play – even if it is from the bench.

“Looking back, you want memories in your career. This is one he will not want to miss.”

Should Rangers start Roofe?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Verdict: Patience needed

Patience is certainly needed if Roofe is to get back to full fitness in time for the final, and should therefore not be risked in their upcoming SPFL fixtures.

With Alfredo Morelos out as well, the Teddy Bears will want a natural presence up top in the one that really matters, and Roofe certainly offers that.

Can you guess these ex-Rangers players' nationalities? Let's get started... Florian Kamberi's country of birth is?

His 16 goals over all competitions so far this term is only bettered by the Colombia international and James Tavernier, and so he would give the Teddy Bears a more natural threat when creating chances against Frankfurt.

Nonetheless, only time will tell whether he will be able to play a part in their biggest game of the campaign.
