Kemar Roofe breaks Europa League record with stunning goal from inside his own half in Rangers’ win vs Standard Liege
Oct. 22, 2020
Kemar Roofe scored a spectacular goal from inside his own half in Rangers’ 2-0 win over Standard Liege on Thursday night.
The £4.5million summer signing from Anderlecht came off the bench to seal the three points in the second minute of stoppage time.
Roofe’s goal was netted from a whopping 54.6 yards, the furthest distance ever scored in a Europa League match.
Rangers were a goal to the good thanks to James Tavernier’s 19th-minute penalty after Nicolas Gavory was penalised for handball.
But Steven Gerrard’s side rode their luck when Standard striker Jackson Muleka had two efforts crash against the woodwork before the break.
There were serious concerns the game would not finish as a heavy rainfall saw the ball stick to the drenched pitch.
However, Danish referee Jakob Kehlet allowed the match to go the distance as Roofe’s spectacular effort confirmed Rangers’ first away win in a group stage encounter since 2007.
