An out-of-contract player has confirmed that he will be leaving the team this summer, saying farewell to Gers fans on social media.
Kemar Roofe, a striker for Rangers, has announced he will quit the team this summer when his contract expires; his next destination is yet to be determined.

The Jamaican international, who cost £4.5 million to sign for Ibrox in the summer of 2020, has spent his whole four-year tenure there plagued by injuries. After making a late substitute cameo in Tuesday night’s 5-2 Premiership victory against Dundee, he bid farewell to the fans.

Manager Philippe Clement admitted he was furious with his side’s first-half performance as they headed down the tunnel at half-time trailing 2-1 against the Tayside outfit. But after giving his players a stern talking to at the break, that brought about an impressive second half turnaround on route to running out comfortable winners in the end

The emphatic victory proved a fitting way for Roofe and fellow outgoing team mate Borna Barisic to sign off in front of a home crowd, and the former Leeds United and Anderlecht hitman has now bid an emotional farewell to supporters on social media this morning.

Posting two images on his Instagram account of him applauding the fans who stayed behind at full-time to take in their traditional end-of-season lap of honour, Roofe wrote: “IBROX it’s been a pleasure… thanks for having me.”

Turkey bound Barisic – an unused substitute during the game – was also spotted appearing to soak in the moment as he remained out on the pitch after his team mates had gone down the tunnel. His future seems much clearer, with a deal reportedly agreed with Super Lig outfit Trabzonspor.

Both players will see their contract at Ibrox run out on May 31st later this month, with some fans claiming they were unfortunate not to see Roofe fulfil his true potential in Glasgow.

One person wrote: “Thanks for the memories, injuries robbed you of an unreal rangers career. Phenomenal talent.” A second person commented: “Fitness robbed us of the real Roofe, nothing but best wishes on the next step of his career.”

A third stated: “Thanks for your efforts. Some cracking games and goals. All the very best.” A fourth added: “A beast in the 55 season, and scored one of the best goals in the history of the club.
