Some Rangers fans were left slamming Kemar Roofe after a bad tackle on Murray Davidson – which only resulted in a yellow card from the ref.
The challenge caused quite a stir on social media and a mass debate over whether 28-year-old should have been shown a red card instead, given that he went over the ball and stamped on Davidson’s leg, which forced the latter to go off with an injury.
Should Roofe have been sent off for Rangers?
Nonetheless, some members of the Ibrox faithful thought that Roofe, currently valued at £5.4m by Transfermarkt, did not cover himself in any glory whatsoever after the tackle and was eventually subbed off.
However, Steven Gerrard’s team still managed to get the three points in the end against St. Johnstone thanks to a single goal from Ianis Hagi in the opening few minutes of the second half, as the Gers edge one step closer to the Scottish Premiership title.
Rangers fan reaction to Roofe tackle
These RFC supporters slammed Roofe on Twitter after watching the striker’s challenge:
“Roofe‘s tackle was so bad he managed to shrink the poor guys leg to half its size.”
“Roofe challenge was horrendous. It doesn’t make you any less of a Rangers fan for saying what it was. I’d be raging if that tackle was on one of our players. Roofe just had a bad night.”
“Just seen the Roofe tackle again oh dear that’s a shocker man. That could be another ban coming our way. I think even he was surprised he wasn’t sent off”
“Shocking tackle by #Roofe at least it didn’t lead to a goal”
“Kemar Roofe. Very lucky tonight. Terrible tackle I’m afraid.”
“Not pretty or overly enjoyable to watch but another three points in the bag for @RangersFC. Awful tackle from #Roofe #RangersFC”
