‘Defo Gives You Hope’ ‘He’s Starting 100%’ Fans Optimistic About Rangers Star’s Fitness After ‘Promising’ Update Ahead Of EL Final

Rangers forward Kemar Roofe was pictured on the plane to Seville yesterday ahead of the Europa League final.

While it doesn’t necessarily guarantee that the Jamaican international will be in the matchday squad, supporters on Twitter are still taking it as a positive sign that he could be in contention:

Roofe has been out with a knee injury since the Scottish Cup semi-final win against Celtic exactly a month ago. That means that the chances of him starting versus Eintracht Frankfurt are pretty slim.

There is, however, a possibility that he will be named on the bench, with the prospect of him coming on for the final 20 to 30 minutes or so if required.

It would be a big gamble if manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst were to start Roofe, and it looks likely that either Joe Aribo or Fashion Sakala will lead the line at the Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium tomorrow night.
