Lee Wallace identifies the moment Rangers knew they were on to something special

Mark Warburton has brought success back to Glasgow Rangers and Ibrox this season.

Lee Wallace has told the Daily Record that when he first heard Mark Warburton speak he started to dream at Rangers again.

Warburton took over at Ibrox last summer, and his impact on the club has been vast and immediate.

The former Brentford boss has transformed Rangers’ fortunes, and assembled a vibrant, young squad.

The Glasgow side have absolutely dominated the Scottish Championship this season, and their recent victory in the Old-Firm derby highlighted the damage that they could do when back in the top flight next term.

And Wallace said: “Once I heard the manager speaking for the first time, that was when we started to dream again.

“Slowly, we got to realise that we could go on and have a very good season.

“I don’t think we would have envisaged having such a good season as this, but when the manager was first introduced to us I think we realised we were onto something special.”

Rangers certainly have produced a special season. The Light Blues have been inspired, as they have claimed two pieces of silverware.

Things could still get better for the Ibrox side, too, as they prepare for the Scottish Cup final against Hibernian.

There is now great optimism for the future at Rangers, and Wallace looks set to play a key role for the side next season.

Wallace currently captains the Light Blues, and he has made 49 appearances for Warburton’s side - earning the Scottish Championship’s Player of the Season award.
