Rangers star Kenny Miller praised team-mate Lee Wallace after the 2-0 win over Hibernian.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller spoke to the club's official website after the 2-0 win over Hibernian on Sunday, and hailed left back Lee Wallace for his display.

Despite going into the game having drawn all of their last five games, Rangers went to Easter Road and won 2-0, giving new manager Stuart McCall his first win as Rangers manager.

It was something of a shock victory for Rangers, with Hibs having won five in a row, and much of the credit has to go to McCall for his surprise tactical change before the game.

McCall switched to a 5-3-2 system, giving Dean Shiels a free role behind Miller and Nicky Clark in attack, whilst Darren McGregor and Wallace were handed wing-back roles.

It was Wallace who opened the scoring in the first half before Miller wrapped things up late on, giving Rangers a chance of grabbing second place in the Scottish Championship.

After the game, Wallace was seen kissing the Rangers badge in front of the travelling supporters, and Miller praised his team-mate during an interview with the Rangers official website, suggesting that the left wing-back position Wallace was given is ideal for him.

"He was superb again. It’s a role that I think is well suited to Waldo, you can see in the 90th minute he’s still striding forward," said Miller.

"He loves that attacking side of the game but again the manager was very clear in what his defensive duties were and everyone to a man followed those instructions to the letter," he added.

Wallace, 27, joined from Hearts back in 2011, and fans will remember his display against Hibs for some time to come - and even suggested that he should be named club captain in the near future!
