Steven Gerard's side were down to nine men by the end of the game at Ibrox, which saw them exit the Europa League - and the first red card from Roofe was a shocker. The 28-year-old had only come of the bench six minutes earlier, before he was rapidly making his way back off the pitch.
Roofe was chasing a ball into the area when Ondrej Kolar came to claim it. Roofe raised a boot to get the ball - made contact - but followed through right into the face of the goalkeeper. Brutal.
To be fair to Roofe, his eyes were on the ball throughout. But obviously a player must take responsibility for where his boots land - and this was incredibly dangerous, as it left Kolar bleeding from the head.
The referee brandished a red card immediately and Rangers could have absolutely no complaints.
Leon Balogun was then shown a red card (for a second booking rather than anything so outrageous as Roofe's challenge) leaving Rangers 1-0 down and up against it.
A spectacular free-kick from Nicolae Stanciu gave Slavia Prague a 2-0 lead on the night - 3-1 on aggregate - and sealed a place in the quarter-finals against the newly crowned Scottish champions.
