Former Glasgow Rangers manager Alex McLeish believes that Kemar Roofe has plenty more to offer the Gers moving forward.
Roofe can do more
Roofe has settled in rather well since making the move to Ibrox from Anderlecht last summer, scoring 12 goals in his first 24 games for his new club (Transfermarkt).
However, McLeish believes that he has plenty more to offer Steven Gerrard and co. He told Ibrox News:
“You would want him to be on fire every single week.
“For that, you would have to go back to the days of Ally McCoist and glorious Rangers goalscorers of the past.
“Nowadays there is a kind of different atmosphere, you just don’t know what the players individually are going through, it must be so strange.
“Roofe, he’s got something to offer Rangers, once he finds his feet – that spectacular goal in the Europa League speaks for itself. Maybe, he’s still finding that identity to play at that every single week because of the demands.”
As mentioned earlier, Roofe has already proven to be an astute signing for the Gers. Only James Tavernier has netted more than the £5.4m-valued 28-year-old (Transfermarkt) for the Gers (BBC), and his arrival at the 54-time Scottish champions has provided a real boost to the whole squad.
Are you happy with Roofe so far?
If he is already performing in such a way after a matter of months, imagine what he could achieve with a full campaign under his belt. As the Gers prepare to lift the Premiership title and therefore potentially compete in the Champions League next term, more improvement from Roofe will be exactly what Gerrard is looking for.
