Rangers fans are loving Lee Wallace even more this afternoon after he pulled out of the Scotland squad.
The Ibrox full-back was a late addition to Gordon Strachan’s national squad for their opening World Cup qualifier against Malta after Kieran Tierney pulled out of the initial selection.
Wallace probably wasn’t going to start in the game, with Hull left-back Andy Robertson fit and available after being named in the first squad.
But it doesn’t matter anyway as Wallace has now pulled out of the squad through injury and instead travelled to Belfast as Rangers take part in a testimonial against Linfield tomorrow night.
Gers fans appear to be enjoying their captain’s withdrawal – considering he’s been regularly ignored in squads since Strachan took over as Scotland manager in 2013.
Lee Wallace was trending on Twitter early Friday evening, with supporters delighted that the defender has dropped out:
Scotland now just have one left-back to select for Sunday’s game in Malta and it remains to be seen if Wallace plays another game for his country after the latest withdrawal.
Rangers fans – should Wallace answer Strachan’s cap call in the future?
