Kemar Roofe Scores Incredible Goal From The Half-Way Line
Kemar Roofe scored the goal of the night in the Europa League, as Rangers opened the group stage with a 2-0 win over Standard Liege.
Rangers were already 1-0 and heading for all three points on Thursday night when Roofe stopped one final attack from the home side, midway inside the Gers half.
Roofe, who previously played in Belgium with Anderlecht, tricked his way through three defenders before shooting from just behind the halfway line.
The ball looped high in the air and straight over the Liege goalkeeper, who was off his line and could do nothing but make a failed attempt at stopping the brilliant goal.
That is sensational! :astonished:- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) October 22, 2020

A thunderstorm came down, it's even better than you think. Nobody could kick the ball 5 yards for the last 10.- robbie (@robbiejh96) October 22, 2020
Rangers had a decent time in the Europa League last season, with Steven Gerrard's team making it into the last 16 before losing to Bayer Leverkusen, and already this season they've got through three qualifying rounds.
They beat Galatasaray in a one off game to get through to the group stage where they'll meet Benfica and Lech Poznan, as well as the return game against Liege.
The result continues their good start to the season, with the Glasgow side unbeaten in the league having beaten rivals Celtic in the Old Firm game last week.
