Rangers yet to receive Kemar Roofe approach despite Derby and Sheffield Wednesday interest

Rangers have reportedly not yet received an official approach from any club for the sale of attacker Kemar Roofe this summer.

According to the Daily Record (July 27, page 52), Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday are the two clubs that have shown interest in signing him.

However, Wednesday boss Darren Moore refused to get drawn into the speculation linking his side to the Jamaican forward.

He said, “I can’t be drawn into that because they are simply not our players to discuss at this moment.”

Keep him

Roofe may not be a regular starter but he’s still an important squad player to have and not worth cashing in on this summer.

There are no indicators as to why he would even fancy moving to the Championship while he can be at Rangers and compete for the league.

Should they navigate their way past the qualifiers, there’s also Champions League football up for grabs – something that he is yet to experience.

There’s no approach made and with the lack of willingness from the player to move, we do not foresee one coming this summer.

Roofe deserves a chance to prove his worth and is a utility player who will come in handy for Giovanni van Bronckhorst this season.

Hopefully, Roofe or the Dutchman come out and say that the Jamaican will not be leaving this summer which will then put an end to all the speculation.

In other Rangers news, Celtic and the Gers are at loggerheads over a record-breaking SPFL midfielder and a bid for him has already been tabled.
