Kemar Roofe to leave Rangers, but we all know that…

The Kemar Roofe story from our old friends at Football Insider and the BBC’s spin on it is absurdly laughable, and is barely above Ibrox Noise ‘exclusively’ revealing Philippe Clement is the Rangers manager.

For those who have not seen it, the sports outlet (who did get the Phil Cowen story right it seems) now claims a massive ‘exclusive’ that Jamaica’s Roofe will NOT be offered a new deal this summer.

Wow, haud the press, this really is stunning news, it’s literally the worst-kept secret at Ibrox.

The press even decided to ask Clement about Roofe at the presser yesterday and here’s what he said:

“Not yet (on his fitness), as we are going step-by-step with him. He trained today for the first time but with the second team. We want him to come back in a good way. I do not want to put a timeframe on it because then I put pressure on the medical staff and Kemar. I want him to be 100 per cent fit when he is with me and before that he is working with them. Of course, he can be really important this season. Yeah, it is about accomplishing this together and not doing stupid things.”

But then for some reason the BBC wanted to spin Clement’s comments as being on the contract issue, rather than the boy’s fitness.

To be exact, the story was spun by the BBC as ‘Clement insists Roofe can play role this season despite reports of no new contract’.

Clement wasn’t asked about his contract, he was only asked about his fitness, and we also know Football Insider are only too happy to make things up now and then. A dubious source at best. But on this one they’re just taking the bleeding obvious and running a story on it.

And the BBC are spinning further on the silly contract story from FI to make a headline.

No, Roofe will not get a new deal, and the likelihood of him playing this season is modest at best.

But none of this is a secret.
