Glasgow Rangers ace Wallace is leaving Ibrox in the summer, according to his wife.
Glasgow Rangers have sent a Twitter message of goodwill to Ibrox ex-player DaMarcus Beasley following his retirement announcement but a number of Gers fans have called the Scottish Premiership club out for not making a similar statement about Lee Wallace.
The United States legend, who has won 126 caps for the USMNT, announced on Twitter that, just ahead of his 37th birthday, he will retire from professional football at the end of the 2019 Major League Soccer season.
Beasley was at Rangers between 2007 and 2010, playing a part in earning the Ibrox club six trophies - two Scottish Premierships, two Scottish Cups and two Scottish League Cups - before his departure to Hannover 96.
As for Wallace, his wife Steph took to social media on Monday to confirm that the Gers ace would be departing Ibrox this summer, bringing an end to an eight-year stint at the club which began following his 2011 move from Hearts.
Rangers posted the following message to Beasley on Twitter:
While nobody could begrudge Gers' message to the player, some fans were not pleased at the club publicly praising one legend whilst not mentioning another:
