Rangers have today completed the signing of Anderlecht striker Kemar Roofe, as confirmed on the official website of the Gers.
The former Leeds United ace has checked-in at Ibrox, signing a four-year deal after a £4 million fee (Daily Mail) was agreed between the clubs.
Roofe spent just a single season in Belgium, as injury got in the way of him making a massive impact.
He did manage seven goals but it’s perhaps his Leeds form that will excite Rangers fans even more.
During the 2018/19 campaign, Roofe scored 15 times as the Whites qualified for the Championship play-offs.
The 27-year-old is lively, scores goals and shows determination beyond belief.
One his day, Roofe is capable of terrorising defenders in the Scottish Premiership and his all-action style will surely be welcomed by the club’s supporters.
His arrival adds some real quality in attack and also ensures Rangers are well-stocked should Alfredo Morelos be sold during the transfer window.
Following today’s announcement, Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to speak of their delight at the news.
Plenty are delighted to see the deal go over the line and can’t wait to see Roofe line-up in the famous blue.
Here is a selection of Tweets from the club’s supporters.

Guy was a goalscorer at leeds
I hope he stays injury free
I would love it if we kept El Buffalo and played the two of them up top
They would cause havoc together
Que sera sera

Pace to burn and his work rate at Leeds the season before he left was unbelievable!! Hopefully stays fit and terrorises defences with his constant running. We look very fluid at the top end of the park, I like this signing although its inevitable Buff will leave now

Great player who will score a bucket load for you. Worked hard every game for us, has quick feet and knows where the back of the net is. If he stays fit he'll be fantastic. All the best to Rangers and Roofe from a #lufc fan!

Great signing- I've watched quite a bit of Leeds over the last couple years and saw him score a few when he was there. Looking forward to seeing him play for Rangers!

Top player when he was with us at Leeds, bagged yourself a top signing here rangers!

Really happy with this signing, was class for Leeds and will link up really well with Hagi & Kent. Also signing a striker for £4m from St Gallen who scored 20 goals last season so we have loads of quality up front.
