Rangers defender James Tavernier impressed with Lee Wallace’s shooting prowess

James Tavernier speaks highly of his Rangers teammate Lee Wallace.

Rangers defender James Tavernier has been singing the praises of teammate Lee Wallace on the club’s official website.

Defender Wallace, who is also the Rangers captain, was on target for the Gers in their Scottish Championship game at the weekend.

The 28-year-old left-back scored the Glasgow outfit’s third goal in the final minutes of the encounter, as they defeated Falkirk 3-1 at Ibrox.

The former Heart of Midlothian star found the target with a stunning effort from 20 yards, leaving defender Tavernier, who also scored against Falkirk, impressed.

“He seems to have a homing beacon in the back of the net when he sets himself up, it’s like a missile as it goes straight in!” the former Newcastle United right-back told Rangers’ official website. “So I’m delighted he got his goal but the most important thing was the victory."

Rangers have been in great form so far this season and are on course to winning the Scottish Championship title.

Mark Warburton’s side are at the top of the league table at the moment with 27 points from nine matches, as many as nine points clear of second-place Raith Rovers.

The Gers, who have a 100% record in the league, have scored 31 goals and conceded only five.
