Rangers striker Kemar Roofe scored one of the best goals in Europe this season last night.
The former Leeds United striker found the goal from inside his own half in Rangers’ 2-0 victory over Standard Liege in Belgium.
The 27-year-old, who joined Rangers from Anderlecht in the summer transfer window, scored in the second minute of injury time, as Steven Gerrard’s side won the Europa League Group D game 2-0 in Belgium.
Former Rangers midfielder Jordan Thompson was following the match, and the 23-year-old Northern Ireland international – who is now on the books of Stoke City in the Championship in England – was impressed.
Ex-Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam, former Celtic striker Chris Sutton and Head Development Squad Coach at Rangers, Graeme Murty, were also impressed.
