Andy Walker thrilled by Kemar Roofe in Rangers clash v St Johnstone

Rangers returned to action in the Scottish Premiership clash against St Johnstone on Saturday afternoon.

After a quiet first-half, things erupted after the break and there was a goal apiece within 15 minutes of the restart.

The Bears went behind but a penalty, smashed home by Kemar Roofe got them level and saw things explode in the aftermath.

Andy Walker was watching for Sky Sports this afternoon, and managed to pinpoint a moment of class in the madness.

While four players were booked by Willie Collum, the controversial pundit singled out Roofe and his calm figure over the spot as he smashed home.

“Here’s the penalty,” he said.

“He does an expert job of it, straight down the middle.”


It appeared strange to see Roofe on penalties, and not the expert taker James Tavernier this afternoon.

The skipper hasn’t had the best of records recently though, so appeared more than happy to pass the baton to one of his strikers.

It certainly worked out in the end, as Roofe sent Zander Clarke the wrong way and smashed it home to send the away fans wild.

Given the confidence in this one, and how “expert” it looked, we can expect Roofe to stay on this duty for the foreseeable future at Ibrox.

If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it and Walker appears to certainly agree with that in his recent assessment of the Jamaican international.
