GLASGOW, Scotland (CMC) — Reggae Boy Kemar Roofe, a striker with Scottish Premiership side Rangers, is hoping a new hair transplant will boost his confidence in time for the new season.

UK-born Roofe, 29, is a key member of Manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s squad, scoring 17 goals in 41 games for league runners-up Rangers last season.

But a knee injury caused him to miss the last month of the schedule, although he came off the bench in extra time in the Europa League final as Rangers suffered a heartbreaking penalty shoot-out defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.

“Now the striker is gunning to be fit and firing for the start of the 2022-23 season when he will also be sporting a new-look hairstyle after undergoing surgery in Istanbul,” the Glasgow Times reported.

Roofe flew to Turkey under the watchful eye of experts at Este Medical Group.

Roofe said: “The reason I chose Este is that every city I’ve lived in — Leeds, Birmingham, and Glasgow — there’s always been a clinic there.

“They have always helped me with my hair difficulties, lack of confidence, and disappointment regarding my hair.”

He added: “The surgery was painless and has been successful, so I’m very happy.”

Roofe made his Jamaica debut in a 3-0 defeat against Panama in a World Cup qualifier last September.

The following month Roofe scored his first goal for the Reggae Boyz, netting the opener in a 2-0 win against Honduras
