Lee Wallace explains why he wouldn't mind if Rangers didn't win the Scottish Championship title this weekend

Mark Warburton's men can wrap up the league crown this weekend, but the skipper would rather see it won in the following game.

Lee Wallace has explained to Rangers' official website that he would not mind if the Light Blues did not end up winning the Scottish Championship title this weekend as he would prefer to win it at Ibrox.

The Gers go into this weekend knowing that if they beat Raith Rovers at Stark's Park and Hibernian fail to get a win away at St Mirren, then the title will be theirs and promotion to the Scottish Premiership will be confirmed. 

But Wallace has admitted that in an ideal world, he would prefer the team to secure their return to the top flight in front of their own supporters. 

"You would always rather win it at home in front of the tremendous support that we've got and as a player you would always rather win it at your own stadium and celebrate in front of your fans," he told the club's official website.

"I don't ever want to make it just a personal thing because of the fact we have got through it in the fashion that we have.

"Albeit it's our second attempt at this league but we have learnt a lot this season and we have really enjoyed it."

Although the Gers boast a comfortable lead at the top of the table, Mark Warburton will be hoping that they can have their league position confirmed as soon as possible as it will allow them to switch their attention to preparing for their return to the top table as well as the cup games they have on the horizon.

They have both the Challenge Cup final with Peterhead and Scottish Cup semi-final against Celtic ahead in an eight-day spell in mid-April so being able to confirm their promotion long before then may benefit their chances in those two games.

While Wallace would have liked to have the title wrapped up at Ibrox, the fact that a win on Saturday could mean that another hurdle in their long run back to the top of the game is cleared means that come the end of the campaign, they are unlikely to care too much regarding where their promotion was confirmed.
