Former Rangers captain Lee McCulloch thinks the chance to say goodbye to the Ibrox fans before his contract ends in the summer would “mean a lot” to Lee Wallace after eight years with the club.
Wallace was one of a handful of players who stuck with the club after demotion to the Third Division in 2012 but looks certain to leave this summer after only appearing twice this season.
Jig thinks his replacement as skipper “deserves” the chance to get a send-off after being a vital figure at the club since signing for Hearts in 2011.
“Lee Wallace is now in the final weeks of his Rangers career and I hope he gets a chance to say goodbye to the supporters and gets the send-off he deserves after his service to the club,” McCulloch told the Evening Times.
“He has been a really important figure on and off the pitch during his time at Ibrox and I think he definitely deserves a farewell so he can thank the fans and the fans can thank him. I am sure that would mean a lot to Lee.”
Wallace has made 256 appearances in all competitions and scored 25 goals during his eight-year spell at Ibrox and lifted all three lower-tier titles and the Challenge Cup but hasn’t won any major honours while a Rangers player.
The former Scotland international has suffered a number of injury problems in recent seasons which have severely restricted his game-time before a row with caretaker manager Graeme Murty saw him suspended by the club.
The ex-Hearts defender briefly returned to the first-team earlier in the season but there appears to be little chance of a reprieve.
Whether he gets to say goodbye to fans will lie with the manager but it seems difficult to see him come back in, even for a cameo from the bench.
