Standard Liege 0-2 Rangers: Roofe raises the bar after Tavernier hits the spot

James Tavernier scored his ninth goal in 10 outings before Kemar Roofe sealed victory in style for Rangers in Belgium.
Rangers continued their impressive form in this season’s Europa League, with a James Tavernier penalty and a Kemar Roofe stunner securing a 2-0 win away at Standard Liege.

Having overcome Lincoln Red Imps, Willem II and Galatasaray in the qualifying rounds – and fresh off an Old Firm triumph over Celtic – Steven Gerrard’s side battled their way to three points in difficult conditions at Stade Maurice Dufrasne.

Tavernier scored the opening goal of the Group D contest in the 19th minute, Rangers’ captain converting from the spot for his ninth goal in 10 outings this season.
