Former club captain Barry Ferguson reckons defender Lee Wallace has played his last game for Rangers, writing in his regular column for The Daily Record.

The left-back has barely had a look in working under Steven Gerrard, making just two substitute appearances this season so far, the last of which came back in December.

He hasn’t started a match since September 2017 and with his contract up at the end of the season, Ferguson thinks he may have played his last game for the club after 256 games in total.

Writing in his Daily Record column, Ferguson said:

As far as I’m concerned he’s already kicked his last ball in a Rangers shirt and, as painful as that will be, it’s now about where he goes next and how he rebuilds the rest of his career.

At the age of 31 he has at least another four years of top level football ahead of him and I’d imagine he’ll have one eye on getting back into the Scotland set-up, which is where he belongs even though we have some pretty strong competition for the No.3 shirt.

That he’s been reduced to the role of the fourth best left back at Rangers does seem pretty strange to me but I can only assume that this is based entirely upon the opinion of the manager.

It’s clearly been a frustrating season for Wallace and leaving Ibrox is probably the best thing for him right now considering Gerrard obviously doesn’t rate his talents.

He was a loyal servant and captain during some dark years for the club and although he fell out with the Ibrox hierarchy last season in the wake of a dreadful 4-0 defeat to Celtic at Hampden, he will likely leave with the best wishes of supporters, many of whom would love to see him make one last first-team bow.

Gerrard doesn’t seem the kind for sentiment though and the chances of Wallace playing again are, as Ferguson mentions, slim at best.

  • I dont belive Lee Wallace being left out the team has anything to do with skill or talent
    it would appear he is not being used in the team or at least as a sub for political reasons
    if he stood up and voiced his opinion after the humiliating defeat against our fiercest rivals whats the problem
    it would be nice to have players today with the same feelings and dedication, players who really play for the jersey
    The same could be said for Kenny Miller
    Whatever the reason Lee Wallace is not in the team is not down to football skill
    There is obviously an ulterior motive here
    it would be a nice gesture to give Lee some game time before he eventually leaves the club
    i would also go as far as giving him some form of testimonial, cant see it happening
    If everyone connected with Rangers had the same feelings and loyalty for our Club as Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller, we would be in a better place today

  • Lee stood by the club in the bad days we all want to forget. He stated he would be here to see sucess and lift trophies . He could have left and I bet he wishes he had. Never thought I’d see a true ranger treated like this. Shame on you rangers. I hate to say that. Something still wrong inside our club

  • I have to agree with willie and Duncan he was brilliant worked well down the left side and was a goal scorer on meny a game total Rangers man think he has been hard done by Rangers same for Miller the team would be better with them still there best left back at the club and hard to replace

  • Think he has been treated disgustingly by the club and personally think Murty should have left the club . I wish Lee well in the future and hope he is treated better where ever he goes.
