John originally arrived on loan at Ibrox in the summer, with ex-boss Pedro Caixinha signing the Welshman as direct competition to the veteran Wallace.
Unfortunately for the Gers skipper, his campaign has been blighted with injury problems, meaning John’s extended spell in the team has coincided with the arrival of Murphy from Brighton.
And while the combination of James Tavernier and Daniel Candieas has already earned major plaudits already this season, Wallace also believes John and Murphy offer a “good variation” going forward:
It’s an interesting interview from Wallace, especially as some Rangers fans believe the 30-year-old will struggle to take John’s place as the club’s number one left-back when he returns to full fitness.
Is this a case of the ex-Hearts defender putting the club’s needs before his personal aspirations and potential playing time?
Rangers are next in action tomorrow afternoon, as they look to bounce back from last weekend’s defeat to Celtic against in-form Kilmarnock at Ibrox.
