Roofe to miss rest of season after hip surgery

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," manager Michael Beale said.
