Danny Mills has said that the absence of Kemar Roofe for Glasgow Rangers’ clash against Aberdeen on Sunday will be a big blow to the Ibrox outfit.
Roofe will be missed
Roofe started the Gers’ last clash against Celtic, which the Ibrox outfit won 1-0 thanks to an own-goal from Callum McGregor. The 28-year-old, though, who signed from Anderlecht for £7m last summer, was subbed off at half-time.
“Oh, definitely it’s a big blow.
“Hopefully, it might not be too long. Who knows, it might be something very, very small and he might end up missing just one game.
“I’ve watched Roofe at Leeds for a long time and they were always reluctant to let him go.
“Obviously, the wages he got from moving abroad were sensational compared to what Leeds could offer so you cannot blame him for that.
“He’s a quality player and I’m sure as long as it’s not too serious, he won’t miss too much football.”
Must make do
It is hard not to agree with Mills. As Alfredo Morelos has struggled so far this campaign, managing just eight goals in 26 appearances, Roofe’s contributions have been vital. He has 12 goals in 21 matches in all competitions since his transfer, 10 of which have come in the Premiership.
Will Rangers beat Aberdeen?
Other than the clashes against Celtic, the matches versus Aberdeen are arguably the Gers’ biggest tests in the Scottish top flight. Derek McInnes’ side are third in the table at the moment and trail Celtic by just three points. Gerrard will be disappointed to be without Roofe, therefore, but he will have to make do.
