Rangers star Kemar Roofe sent off after leaving Slavia keeper Ondrej Kolar's covered in blood with flying high boot

RANGERS star Kemar Roofe was sent off after leaving Slavia Praguekeeper Ondrej Kolar bloodied with a flying high boot to the face.

The Light Blues striker was brought on to replace Scott Arfield in the 55th minute at Ibrox – but saw red just six minutes later after an ugly mid-air collision.

Replays showed that the Rangers star had his eye on the ball and that it was a a purely accidental challenge.

However, he was ultimately sent off for endangering an opponent – and Kolar being carried off on a stretcher with a bandaged forehead.

Slavia were forced to replace the goalie with 18-year-old keeper Matyas Vagner.

Speaking on the BBC's Sportsound show, ex-Rangers player Charlie Adam said of the challenge: "That is indefensible.

"If Roofe goes with his head, he's got more chance of the goalkeeper taking him out and winning a penalty."

Rangers hero Peter Lovenkrands added: "Roofe can easily kick that ball and bring his foot down.

"To me, I think he can get his foot out of the way of the goalkeepers head. It's a definite red card."
