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.
That is sensational! 😲

QUIZ: How well do you remember Slaven Bilic’s first season in charge of West Brom?
With Slaven Bilic looking to sign a new striker over the summer, the Croatian moved for Karlan Grant, securing a £15m move for the former Huddersfield man, but many West Brom fans have now looked at Roofe as “one we let go”.
Reacting to the Jamaican’s goal in the Europa League for Rangers, these Baggies fans gave their take on Twitter:

“We should’ve kept Kemar Roofe” 😂
When he’s scoring goals on a regular basis in the PL, I might agree. In 5 years since leaving he’s gone on to play in league 1, the championship, belgium and then to the SPL (so back to league 1 standard). “SHOULD’VE KEPT HIM” 🙈 #WBA
