Steven Gerrard Admits Kemar Roofe's Incredible Half-Way Line Goal Is 'Best He's Ever Seen Live'

Steven Gerrard Admits Kemar Roofe's Incredible Half-Way Line Goal Is 'Best He's Ever Seen Live'

Steven Gerrard has praised Kemar Roofe's stunning half-way line goal for Rangers vs Standard Liege as the best he's ever seen live.

Rangers won their opening Europa League game 2-0 and Roofe's moment of magic helped seal all three points.

Roofe tricked his way through three defenders before his shot from just behind the halfway line left goalkeeper Arnaud Bodart scrambling.

Gerrard spoke to BT Sport immediately after the game and stated: "None of my goals were in that league.

"I think it was a moment of genius. I've been lucky enough to watch it five or six times since the end of the game and it's the actual build-up and preparation before the strike.

"He knocks two people off the ball with sheer strength on a very difficult pitch in the worst conditions I've seen.

Then he manages to take someone on - and to then have the vision and audacity to try the strike in the first place, I just think that's a moment of genius.

"And it's probably the best goal I've seen live - and I've been a professional since 1998. Unbelievable strike and he deserves all the plaudits for it."

Roofe did get into trouble at the full-time whistle and managed to rile up the opposition staff.

"I can't control what comes our way from that," he continued per Sky Sports. "I don't think I'd describe it as ugly. I think it's too harsh. I think it was a little something or nothing.

"They were disappointed in Kemar's celebration. Kemar was punished for that and that's for me to deal with and for me to handle.

"They are obviously very frustrated that they have been beaten for the first time in six years on their home patch.

"It's not nice to lose football matches, especially when you're the favourites to win them. We can understand the frustrations, but it was disappointing. We thought it could have been avoided."
