Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson has expressed his joy at landing summer transfer target Kemar Roofe, who has joined Gers from Anderlecht.

Roofe has put his pen to paper on a four-year contract at Ibrox and is adding to Steven Gerrard’s attack options.

Rangers have also caught Cedric Itten from the Swiss side of St. Gallen, but while Itten will have to adjust to the Scottish game, Roofe has a head start due to his background in British football.

Roofe traveled to Leeds before moving to Anderlecht and made 122 appearances for the Whites.

Rangers sporting director Wilson is delighted to have landed Roofe and has admitted the forward has been named as the primary target.

He told his club’s official website: “Kemar was a primary target in this transfer window and we are absolutely delighted that he chose to join the Rangers.

“He is a player who has been admired for some time by Steven and the staff and we are all very excited about what he can add to our team”Wilson added.

It remains to be seen when Roofe will make his Rangers debut, with Gers hosting St Mirren this next weekend, after they return from a trip to Germany to face Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League.
