Fans of Glasgow Rangers have taken to Twitter in order to criticise the performance of Gers centre-forward, Kemar Roofe, in the Ibrox club’s draw with St Johnstone on Wednesday evening.
In the fixture itself, a 55th-minute strike by Scott Wright appeared to have sealed all three points for Steven Gerrard’s side in the match at McDiarmid Park, only for Gers’ centre-back, Jack Simpson, to give away a penalty in the fourth minute of added time, which Liam Craig duly converted to see the game end 1-1.
However, the penalty could have quite easily been avoided for Rangers, as, with the clock ticking down in the dying moments of the game, rather than wasting time, Roofe chose to have a shot from his own half, with Zander Clark subsequently collecting the ball and sending it back into the Rangers penalty area, when the foul was committed.
Aside from his part in the late equaliser, the 28-year-old also put in a rather disappointing performance against the Saints, managing no shots on target in the fixture, as well as losing possession of the ball 13 times – with the striker earning a SofaScore match rating of just 6.7.
And, in reaction to Roofe’s display, fans of Rangers flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on the centre-forward’s performance, with many appearing far from happy with what they saw from the £26,000-per-week man against St Johnstone.
Is Roofe good enough for Rangers?
So, what exactly did these Rangers fans have to say in reaction to Kemar Roofe’s performance?
“Roofe has been absolutely awful since late December. Why should he start through the middle when Itten has barely kicked a ball and should get game time?”
“Shocking from Roofe. Time up, keep the ball, game over! The ‘keeper was hardly even off his line!”
“Shocking from Roofe there, the ref had no clue what he was doing that full game!!”
“Embarrassing from the referee, he was desperate to give that and he completely lost control of the game. Poor performance by us to be fair and awful game management from Roofe though.”
“Roofe’s been stinking since Christmas. He and Itten were dreadful tonight. I realise there was nothing at stake but these two don’t impress anytime they play together.”
“He was better than Roofe, who appears to get a free ride for his terrible form.”
