A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to rave about Kemar Roofe’s heroics for Steven Gerrard’s side at Ibrox today.
The 27-year-old netted twice for Rangers as they came from behind to run out 3-1 winners over Motherwell in Glasgow.
Rangers went into the game 13 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table but reeling from their shock Scottish League Cup exit to St Mirren in midweek.
And the Light Blues got off to the worst possible start as the visitors opened the scoring in the sixth minute, Callum Lang arriving at the back post to net with their first attack of the game.
Rangers remained a goal down at half time and didn’t equalise until the 73rd minute, Roofe pouncing to finish off from James Tavernier’s superb ball to the back post.
Cedric Itten finally got the Ibrox side in front eight minutes from time, heading Tavernier’s corner home, and Roofe put the game to bad in stoppage time with a shot on the turn.
Rangers were certainly made to work hard for their win but they now sit 16 points clear of Celtic, having racked up a half-century of points after just 18 games.
And Roofe’s two-goal display prompted plenty of Bears to wax lyrical about the striker – here is some of the fan reaction to the £3.5million man’s efforts on the day:
Kemar Roofe 💙 phenomenal

That was extremely tough to watch, bad for the old heart and seemed all too familiar to previous years. However the team dug deep when It mattered and fully deserve the credit. Kemar Roofe once again the difference, some signing he’s turning out to be 🔴⚪️🔵

Not just because he’s scored a brace today, but Kemar Roofe is a brilliant footballer and I’m absolutely certain we’re still to see the best of him.
His touch is excellent, his movement is superb and boy can he finish!
