Video: Lee Wallace Calls Rangers Best Club in the World Whilst Receiving John Greig Award

Lee Wallace called Rangers the best club in the world after collecting the John Greig Special Achievement Award at his side’s annual awards night on Sunday.

Wallace was given the prestigious award – named after the Gers’ iconic captain Greig – after leading Rangers from the fourth tier of Scottish football back to the Premiership, culminating in last weekend’s win over bitter rivals Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

The left-back has enjoyed a stellar season this campaign too, in which he has scored nine goals from defence and captained his team-mates to comfortably claim the Championship title – in which they currently sit 13 points clear of Hibs.

Wallace seemed a little lost for words as he accepted the award alongside Greig but summed up his feeling in a message that will go down well with Rangers fans everywhere:

Wallace had more good news for supporters by insisting he has no ambitions to leave Ibrox any time soon:

Elsewhere, Barrie McKay was rewarded for his fine form recently by taking home Rangers’ Young Player of the Year award – this time last year he was on loan at Raith Rovers.

What do you think of Wallace’s contribution to Rangers over the past few seasons?
