With his side holding onto a 1-0 lead in stoppage time, Roofe took it upon himself to put the game to bed.
After winning the ball back mid-way in his own half, Roofe powered his way past three defenders before unleashing a lobbed strike from just before the half-way line.
The ball went flying over goalkeeper Arnaud Bodart’s head who, like everyone else watching the game, was not expecting such an audacious effort.
The 27-year-old Roofe has only been at the Scottish club for two months but will struggle to create a more memorable moment as the Englishman arguably inserted himself into the greatest goal ever scored debate.
The goal sent Rangers players into a frenzied celebration with Roofe himself looking as surprised as anyone.
Those celebrations seemed to annoy the opposition’s bench with the match ending in unsavory scenes. A member of Liege’s backroom staff squared up to Roofe at full-time which sparked a melee between the two sides.
Once emotions had settled, Roofe was able to reflect on a special moment.
“It’s a good goal, but it doesn’t give you extra goals or points for scoring that. It is still the same as a tap-in.”
