Rangers signing Roofe: Leeds experience has me ready for Ibrox

Kemar Roofe says his time at Leeds United will hold him in good stead at Rangers.

The English attacker has joined Steven Gerrard's side after a season with Anderlecht in Belgium.

Roofe told The Telegraph: "It's all about Rangers and what we do.

"It's about trying to win as many games as possible - I never focus on anyone else that I can't control. I'm at Rangers, I'm part of it now and I want to contribute.

"I know how big Rangers are because I grew up in England watching football as a kid. I also know players I've played with who are from Scotland or have played with Rangers and Celtic. They've told me about it.

"I've been fortunate enough to play for Leeds and Anderlecht, who are massive in Belgium. I've had good experiences at big clubs where I've had to understand the culture and what it means to the area and to the fans.

"I know that if you're second you're nowhere in Glasgow, but that's the case everywhere. It was the same at Leeds for me and in Belgium with Anderlecht. At Anderlecht, if you don't win in style, it means nothing."
