Wallace has seen his Gers career all but halted following a bust-up with former interim boss Graeme Murty last season, in the wake of a 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final thumping against Celtic, which resulted in the left-back being suspended from the Ibrox club along with Kenny Miller.
Previously, Wallace was the club captain, and stayed faithful to his side when they were forced to play in the fourth tier of the Scottish game, but he’s found his opportunities severely limited since Gerrard’s arrival last summer.
When faced with shareholders this afternoon, Gerrard elaborated on his treatment of the 31-year-old, and he didn’t mince his words.
Speaking via the Sun, one supporter posed the question: “The treatment we’ve given to our captain Lee Wallace who has stood by this club for the last three years – I know there was a bit of whatever there was there – but I think it’s disgusting and I’m really disappointed that it’s not been resolved and that man’s not back in the team.”
Gerrard simply responded: “I came in and Lee Wallace was out injured at the time. He missed 12 months of football.
“I have to pay my respects to Lee in terms of his professionalism.
“At the moment, to be really candid, he’s still part of the plans while he’s here but I have better options at the moment in that position.
“My relationship with Lee is fine. He trains with us every day and is pushing hard to regain his place in the team.
“That’s where that situation is.”
What do you think of the situation? Does Wallace deserve better treatment as a reward for sticking by the club during desperate times?
