Does Rangers’ reported scouting mission suggest Kemar Roofe remains on the radar?


Does Rangers’ reported scouting mission suggest Kemar Roofe remains on the radar?

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard was linked with a move to bring Roofe to Ibrox this summer.

It is being reported that Rangers had scouts present in Belgium this weekend as Anderlecht took on Zulte-Waregem in the Belgian Pro League. 

Het Laatste Nieuws report that the Glasgow club were among several teams from across Europe in attendance watching on and scouting the two sides. 

Immediately, the question of who might be being lined up for Steven Gerrard is being asked. So could it be that Rangers are still keeping tabs on a player linked with an Ibrox move in the summer?

Amid heavy speculation over the future of Alfredo Morelos, Rangers had to have potential replacements lined up. According to The Scottish Sun, one potential option was Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe.


Rangers manager Steven Gerrard reportedly told Ibrox director of football Mark Allen to identify potential replacements for the Colombian hothead. Roofe was, reportedly, ‘top of the list’.

Of course, despite only being in July, that report is now massively outdated. Morelos stayed, Allen is no longer at Rangers and Roofe did indeed move on. 

He joined Anderlecht in the summer for a deal reportedly (Yorkshire Post) worth around £6.5 million as Leeds cashed in on the frontman. 

But that does not mean Rangers might not be keeping tabs still on the player. Morelos likely remains a big target for clubs around Europe and whilst Roofe may have only just moved to Belgium Rangers would be confident of luring him back to the UK. 

Roofe would have certainly impressed watching scouts. He scored in the 81st minute to take his tally to five goals in seven league games for his new club.

Rangers fans will certainly hope he remains on the Ibrox radar.
