WATCH: Kemar Roofe produces Goal of the Season contender with unreal strike from own half

Rangers began their Europa League campaign with a comfortable 2-0 win over Standard Liege at a rain-soaked Stade Maurice Dufrasne on Thursday night. 

James Tavernier gave Steven Gerrard's men the lead from the penalty spot after 19 minutes, but it was the second goal that caught the attention of football lovers. 

Kemar Roofe produced a moment of magic as he scored one of the best goals in recent seasons to double their lead.

Watch the goal;

Speaking after the game, Gerrard, who scored wonder-goals during his playing days, lauded Roofe, while also terming the strike 'the best he has ever seen'.   

"He collects the ball 15 yards outside our box, he is strong for two challenges, he holds the player off with the third challenge and then he actually takes the player on in the worst conditions I've seen," he said. 

Adding: "And then, to have the vision, the power, and the class to score from 55 yards - I don't think I've seen a better goal and I don't think I will see a better goal."

The Puskas award should be awarded already!
