Kemar Roofe wants to be remembered at Rangers for more than his wonder goal against Standard Liege

The 27-year-old scored his sixth goal for Steven Gerrard’s side since his £3.5 million move from Anderlecht in August, helping them stretch their lead over Celtic at the top of the Premiership table to 11 points.

The highlight of Roofe’s time at Rangers so far has been his astonishing goal from inside his own half against Standard Liege in Belgium last month. As they prepare for their next Europa League test against Benfica at Ibrox on Thursday night, the former Leeds United player is keen to create many more memorable moments in a Rangers jersey.

"Of course that goal in Liege will always be remembered,” said Roofe. “But that’s not all there is to me. I still think I’ve got improvement to make here. I still have more to go fitness-wise. Once I can run, run, run without feeling tired, that’s when I’ll know I’m ready to be at my best.

"It was a good performance against Aberdeen. I was happy with my goal but the most important thing is another three points for the team. As long as I can contribute to picking up the points, that’s the main thing. Scoring or assisting is a bonus.

"I enjoy playing with everyone on this team. We have a lot of possession and we work on it in training with different ways to attack and move. It is good to have the options we have got.”
