Rangers boss says this Ibrox defender has been outstanding, praises his consistency

Mark Warburton

Rangers manager Mark Warburton speaks highly of Ibrox star Lee Wallace.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Glasgow Evening Times that Lee Wallace has been outstanding all season.

Wallace has been on the books of Rangers since 2011 and is one of the most important players for the team.

The 28-year-old defender is also the club captain and has been nominated for the PFA Scotland Championship Player of the Year.

Warburton has praised the former Heart of Midlothian left-back, and he believes that the Scotland international deserves the recognition that he is getting at the moment.

“On the pitch he [Wallace] has been outstanding all season and his level of consistency has been first class,” Warburton told The Glasgow Evening Times. “The impact he has off the pitch here and at Ibrox has been first class too.”

Rangers have already won the Scottish Championship title this campaign and will feature in the Scottish Premiership next season.

The Gers have also clinched the Scottish Challenge Cup and have progressed to the final of the Scottish Cup.

The Glasgow giants will return to action this afternoon when they are on Alloa Athletic at Ibrox in the Scottish Championship.

Rangers forward Martyn Waghorn has also been nominated for the PFA Scotland Championship Player of the Year award, along with Hibernian duo Jason Cummings and John McGinn.
