Gerrard: No bids for Rangers defender Lee Wallace

Former Rangers captain Lee Wallace has had a difficult time of late. When speaking to the Scottish Sun on Friday, Steven Gerrard suggested that it’s unlikely to get any better either.
The Scotland international has played nearly 200 league matches for the Gers.
Ever since he and Kenny Miller allegedly got into a dispute with Graeme Murty last season, though, he has found himself out of favour at the club.

At times under Steven Gerrard, he has found himself fourth choice left-back. That’s behind Borna Barisic, Andy Halliday and Jon Flanagan.
Such circumstances have limited him to
just two appearances in all competitions this campaign. Both of those came as a substitute.
The Scottish Sun reported in January, that Championship side Bristol City were interested in giving Wallace a fresh start.
However, it appears that never translated into a concrete offer.

“I dont know whether he had the opportunity to go out or not, you’ll have to ask him”,
Gerrard told the Scottish Sun.
“But no one came on the phone for his services.”
At first glance, it would seem strange that no one swooped for Wallace.
He’s an experienced, proven performer,
clearly surplus to requirements at Ibrox.

However, it makes more practical sense for potential suitors to move for Wallace in the summer.
His contract expires at the end of May, so he will soon be available on a free.
Until then, it looks as though the misery is set to continue for the former skipper.
