Lee Wallace of Rangers
Ex-Rangers man Lee Wallace has stated that he will continue to show his 'class' and 'remain quiet' after his former Rangers teammate Kenny Miller spoke in his defence about his Ibrox exit.
Miller suggested to The Glasgow Evening Times that Wallace was frozen out by Rangers because he won his appeal against the club after he, and Miller, were disciplined for their actions in the dressing room following an Old Firm defeat.
Since winning that appeal, left-back Wallace hardly featured for the club and he was given a little cameo by manager Steven Gerrard on the last home game of the previous season - Gerrard wasn't in charge when the above situation occurred, Graeme Murty was in the hot seat.
Speaking to Jim White on TalkSport (02/07/2019 11:25 am), Wallace was asked about Miller's comments, as he insisted that his only regret is not winning a trophy with the club.
"It's a very difficult one," Wallace told TalkSport. "I have chosen, me being me and the class I feel, that I'll always remain quiet on it. For me, it was about working hard and trying to make a big an impact as I could to the team.
"I think if you spoke to the guys, players or staff, that my impact, whether I was on the pitch or not, was still fairly strong - When I look back, absolutely gutted that I left.
"If I was trying to frame it as a regret, the only regret I have is the fact that I was never able to win Rangers silverware - the fact that I stayed, there was never a moments regret on that. I stayed for the fight."
Following his Rangers exit, Wallace has since made the switch to England and re-joined his former coach Mark Warburton at Championship side Queens Park Rangers.
It will be a new challenge for the experienced defender, who will have to watch on from afar as his old club try to stop their neighbours from winning nine-in-a-row.
Jon Flanagan will deputise in that left-back role, as Wallace leaves a big hole at the club, both on the pitch, and arguably more what he gave to the club off the field of play.
