Kemar Roofe out AGAIN as Rangers lose another player

Rangers have been hit by yet another yet another yet another injury blow after Kemar Roofe was potentially ruled out till 2023.

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst today confirmed Roofe has picked up yet another injury and will miss around two weeks, but then that’s probably the same two weeks it was going to take Alfredo Morelos to sign a deal. It’s the new 7-10 days.

As such with the world cup arriving in a little over three weeks from now, the chances of Roofe being back before then and actually playing are pretty modest, given his entire footballing contribution to the club this season has been a total of 28 minutes, and he’s miles off being fully match fit.

So is it actually a blow? Not really, nothing is any more. The injury list now:

Goldson, Helander, Souttar, Jack, Kamara, Ofoborh, Hagi, Lawrence and Roofe with Lowry’s status of returning being a touch fragile.

Not to mention John Lundstram and James Tavernier’s ongoing injury issues as well, with both playing through the pain we understand, certainly in Lundstram’s case. Long story short, with news like this from the club repeatedly coming out, rather than anything to inspire us (Sir Walter statue aside), is it any wonder Ibrox Noise isn’t especially lavish with the positivity these days?

It is a pretty grim state of affairs, and we wait a fair few months we think before our squad is starting to look anything like healthy again. What IS going on with the medical staff at Ibrox and Auchenowie, or is it the training system by Gio?

That’s an absolute pile up of players on long-term absence, with John Souttar being more interested in running his coffee shop these days – far too many players in Rangers’ colours aren’t available for selection, and it’s mindboggingly bewildering.

Roofe, in truth, has been questionable for a long time, the Jamaica international being suspect mentally over his injuries for some period. But end of the day, it’s another loss, yet another one to add to a constantly growing pile of them.

Who on earth will be next?

  1. I commented when he came back …lets see how long he lasts …not long as predicted ,what an utter joke another wage thief GTF .
    It makes it all the more annoying that we signed souttar when we already had hellander and roofe at the club ,who were signed knowing they had a horrendous injury record at their previous clubs ,what made them think souttar would be any different? ,more millions squandered on wages FFS ! .

  2. I think its the Medical Team, its been happening for several seasons now so it cant be the managers blame this time. I just think now we have our Club and its not fit for purpose on multiple levels. For example:

    4.Medical Team
    5. Facilities (At Ibrox)

  3. Unbelievable, wh picks these walking cripples, it has to stop, what a waste of wages all these so called players are, we rarely see them, if at all, the Red Cross eleven. Young players beating Napoli, scoring goals, can’t get a chance over these hopeless non trying clowns we play. Why are so many of them underperforming chancers anywhere near this team, how many chances to perform do they need, embarrassing now, beat again tomorrow for sure, bottom six soon, mince, pure mince, not enough rangers Scottish heart in there

  4. I wonder how many of these players would be fit week in week out if on pay as you play ………just a thought ……..
