Kemar Roofe scored a late match-winner to help Rangers produce one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. The striker has seen his game time reduced this season due to injuries as well as the form of their main striker Alfredo Morelos. He came off the bench to score in the 81st minute to give them a crucial three points and helped keep the pressure on Rangers.
Aberdeen manager Jim Goodwin:“I am extremely disappointed to take nothing from the game. I thought the overall performance merited a point. I am not going to say we should have won the game as we didn’t carry enough attacking threat in the final third, but I thought, with the shape and structure defensively, the team was brilliant. Joe Lewis only had a couple of shots on target to deal with over 90 minutes, which is a great credit to the boys. I am extremely disappointed with the goal we conceded, particularly as we defended pretty much every cross that came into the box really well. I think we deserved a 0-0. Rangers won’t have enjoyed that 90 minutes as we didn’t make life easy for them.”
Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “Kemar is very important. In the last months, he has struggled a little bit with some injuries but he is still working hard on the training ground to be ready. I gave him a compliment in the locker room because it is not easy.”
