West Brom: Fans react after Kemar Roofe’s stunning strike for Rangers

West Brom: Fans react after Kemar Roofe’s stunning strike for Rangers - Premier League

Many West Bromwich Albion fans have reacted after the club’s former academy player Kemar Roofe scored a sublime effort for Rangers last night.

Steven Gerrard’s side produced a superb away performance against Belgian side Standard Liege, with James Tavernier’s 19th-minute penalty and Roofe’s stoppage time strike seal all three points.

The latter was a magnificent moment as the former Baggies striker took possession on the half way line, beat off two defenders and then attempted to lob the Liege ‘keeper. The striker’s attempt proved a success as he wheeled off in celebration of his third goal in seven games for the Scottish side since joining in the summer.

Roofe, who came up through the youth academy at The Hawthorns, made 78 appearances for the Baggies under-23 side before moving on without featuring for Albion’s first team.
