Kemar Roofe exit likely as ‘better for all’ Rangers transfer latest shared by Daily Record journalist

Rangers striker Kemar Roofe has been urged to leave the club this summer in a move that would be “better for all” parties, according to Daily Record journalist Gavin Berry.

The 30-year-old has been with the Gers since August 2020, joining the Ibrox outfit on a four-year deal from Anderlecht.

But a knee injury has unfortunately limited Roofe to just three league matches all season, with the issue perhaps set to lead to a summer exit.

“The striker’s injury record means he hasn’t been available nearly enough and a fresh challenge might be better for all concerned,” Berry wrote for the Daily Record.

“He has a year left on his deal so any fee would be a bonus plus his wages could be better invested on a new signing.”

It would be an unfortunate exit for Roofe, who has been very unlucky with injury this season, much like a handful of his teammates.

The likes of Steven Davis and Ianis Hagi have also missed the majority of the campaign, and could join Roofe out the exit door this summer.

Such exits would be a real shame for players who have meant so much to Rangers in recent years, with the trio and indeed others in line to leave Ibrox with really not much fanfare at all.

But that comes given the more pressing matter of who could be brought in to replace them, with fans desperate to see some new faces arriving before next season.

Roofe has made just six appearances in all competitions this season, and Beale may simply use the injury as an excuse to get an ageing player off the books.

Hopefully the striker can recover and fight for a spot in the squad, with Roofe boasting a decent record during his time in blue with 36 goals from 78 matches.

In other Rangers news, the club earned a huge fee for reaching the final of the 2021/22 Europa League, according to finance expert The Swiss Ramble.
