Share post:

Rangers striker Kemar Roofe will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on his hip.

The striker joins winger Tom Lawrence on the sidelines but John Souttar and Ridvan Yilmaz are back in contention for Sunday’s visit of Raith Rovers in the Scottish Cup.

Roofe has been plagued by injury this season and has made just six appearances in all competitions.

He scored against Livingston in his last game on February 18, but will now target a return to action at the start of next season.

Lawrence’s season was confirmed to be over last week, with the winger also undergoing surgery.

“Kemar Roofe has had a minor hip operation and will also be back for pre-season,” Beale said.

“Tom Lawrence has had a minor operation and will be back at pre-season.

“The decision was taken that, with a short amount of league games left, it is better to get these boys ready for the new campaign and they will be important players for us, come pre-season, for sure.”

“We have one or two bumps but nothing major heading into the weekend. Ridvan [Yilmaz], [John] Souttar and [Leon] King are all available for selection.”
