Lee Wallace Says Entire Rangers Hierarchy Snubbed Him as He Left Ibrox Club

Lee Wallace has revealed he was ignored by the entire Rangers hierarchy as he left the Ibrox club at the end of last season.

The experience left-back departed Steven Gerrard’s side after eight years in Govan at the end of the 2018/19 campaign following the expiration of his contract, and he’s gone on to sign for ex-Gers boss Mark Warburton at English Championship side QPR.

Wallace played more than 200 times for Rangers, and played for the Glasgow giants in every tier of the Scottish game, but the 31-year-old has revealed he wasn’t given any sort of send-off by those within the corridors of power at Ibrox.

Speaking during an interview on talkSPORT, via the Sun, Wallace was asked if any of the club’s ‘top brass’ wished him well, and he said: “In top brass you mean the hierarchy at the club?

“No that wasn’t the case and I’m not too disappointed in that, it was to be expected.

“But there are certain parts of the club that are what they are and that’s a small fraction.

“Everything else was incredible for me. Even last season although I never really played under Steven Gerrard he was fantastic and what a learning experience for me.

“Michael Beale was incredible – he was fantastic for me.

“Steven Gerrard has made a big impression on me being an aspiring coach and the level of detail I could take from the guy was incredible.

“I trained and was given a fair crack at it and I’m thankful.”

Of course, Wallace and his former team-mate Kenny Miller were suspended by Rangers after a fallout with then interim boss Graeme Murty back in April of 2018 but, even so, surely he deserved to be treated a bit better than this?
