STEVEN GERRARD reckons Kemar Roofe is 'like a Duracell Bunny' as he leads the way in terms of his workrate numbers this term.

The striker took time to get up to speed at Ibrox following his move from Anderlecht but has now become an integral part of the Rangers attack.

Roofe's movement and energy are trademarks of his game and Gerrard has been impressed with the statistics that he has been posting in recent weeks.

Gerrard said: "I think there is more to come in certain departments. One thing for sure, I have to pay credit to the fitness department and the sports science lads.

"The numbers that we are hitting right now are really impressive. I think Kemar Roofe has certainly helps on that. He doesn’t stop, he is like a Duracell Bunny.

"He is hitting numbers that you don’t really expect from a forward player, he is running more than the midfielders and running the most in the team at the moment.

"I think he is really setting the example in terms of what we need to put into a game to get the results we are getting.

"Everyone is hitting impressive numbers, but Roofe has raised the bar with the last couple of performances he has put in."
