Kemar Roofe’s incredible injury-time strike saw Rangers beat Standard Liege 2-0 as Steven Gerrard’s side began their Europa League campaign in impressive style.

James Tavernier had given the visitors a 19th-minute lead from the penalty spot – the right back’s ninth goal already of the season – before Roofe sealed their win with one of the goals of the season.

The substitute picked up possession midway inside his own half, before catching Standard goalkeeper Arnaud Bodart slightly off his line and scoring from just inside his own half.

As a result, Rangers go joint top of Group D after inflicting a first home defeat in Europe on Standard for 15 games and six years.
