Rangers youth full-back Jordan Houston has paid homage to departing club icon Lee Wallace, describing him as a “true pleasure to work with”.
It’s high praise from the youngster, who would’ve surely been mentored by the legendary Rangers left-back. Wallace’s influence at the club clearly ran much deeper than captaining the Gers through a storm.
Houston took to Twitter to thank the player he described as a “leader” and a “legend”.

It shows just how much an impact Lee Wallace had on the younger players coming through at Ibrox. Now 19, Houston signed his first ever professional contract with Rangers in 2017.
He is someone who is touted to have a bright future and plays in a similar position to Wallace, albeit on the other side of the pitch.
Houston spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Airdrie as the club look to aid his development. It’s a development which will have been influenced by Lee Wallace.
Lee Wallace is set to leave Ibrox this summer after eight seasons with Rangers. Gers fans were delighted to get the chance to give the player an Ibrox send-off earlier in the season.

But many are disappointed that the club has recognised other players via social media but are yet to recognise Wallace’s contribution.
Jordan Houston is also not the first Gers player to pay tribute to full-back. They’ve been flooding in for the last few weeks.
