Lee Wallace opens on “one regret” from up-and-down time at Rangers

Rangers legend Lee Wallace has been speaking about his time at the club in an exclusive interview with talkSPORT.
Speaking to Jim White, Wallace speaks about his time at Rangers, his tumultuous final year at the club and the aftermath of the infamous fall-out involving himself, Kenny Miller and Graeme Murty.
Wallace beamed with pride about his time as Rangers captain. But he says there is one regret he still holds about his time at Ibrox.

“I think the only regret I have is the fact that I was never able to win true Rangers silverware,” Wallace told talkSPORT radio [first broadcast 02/07/19 around 11:15 am].
“We had a fantastic journey, a lot of ups and downs. I stayed and I was proud to do that and we managed to retain league status which was part of the fightback.
“But my one and only regret was that I was not able to be part of a team to win true Rangers silverware.”

Wallace spoke with class throughout, even when touching on the fall-out with Graeme Murty. During this time, Wallace praised himself and Kenny Miller for “absolutely smashing” their appeal.
“Kenny and I actually smashed that appeal but it was a pretty simple procedure because all we had to do was tell the truth and speak honestly,” said Wallace.
“It was a comfortable process and the consequence was we won the appeal. But again I knew it would be difficult moving forward just because of that.

“I never let my disappointment be known”

“But there was never one day when I went into that club for training or whatever that I let my disappointment be known.
“For me, it was about never detracting from the positivity that the manager had going at that point. I put the team and the club before me.”
That same attitude is what made Lee such an example at the club. Both himself and Kenny Miller are still to this day praised for their work with young players during their time at Rangers.

And despite all the setbacks, it’s refreshing to hear that Wallace continued to put the club before anyone or anything else.
Waldo explained that during his final year at Ibrox he kept his chin up, kept working hard and done everything he could to be a top role model and help the club achieve success.
Wallace has now signed on at QPR where he will join up with former Gers boss Mark Warburton in the English Championship.
