Rangers leaning sports broadcaster Jim White tweeted a picture with Lee Wallace on Sunday, praising the ex-Gers skipper for his first QPR goal.

The 32-year-old scored a stunner in the 76th minute at Loftus Road, helping his side to a 5-1 win over Swansea in the Third Round of the FA Cup.

After knocking the ball up in the air with his head, Wallace steadied himself and lashed home a right-footed volley from the edge of the area into the left side of the net, much to the delight of his teammates and the QPR fans.

It seems Glasgow-born White was at the game and afterwards, he grabbed a picture with the ex-Ibrox man.

“Watched this guy run the show for QPR today, even scoring with his RIGHT foot! he tweeted. “Former Rangers captain Lee Wallace. Class act.”

The tweet went down a storm, picking up over 4000 likes and 100 comments overnight, with Bears echoing White’s sentiment and praising Wallace.

Former Rangers goalkeeper, Liam Kelly, who is now Wallace’s QPR teammate, also took to Twitter to congratulate the defender.

It was Wallace’s first goal in English football and his first anywhere since he netted in a 4-0 Rangers win over Hamilton at Ibrox in March 2017.

QPR have won their first two matches of the new year 6-1 and 5-1 with the ex-Ger playing the full 90 minutes on both occasions following a spell out of the side in December.

Sunday’s game also marked a return to the fold for Kelly, who had missed around two months of action due to an injury.
