Reported Rangers target Jed Wallace is in outstanding form for Millwall, as his contract runs down at The Den.
Football League World reported in September that both Old Firm clubs and a host of Premier League sides were monitoring 27-year-old Wallace.
The likes of Newcastle United, West Ham and Crystal Palace were all credited with interest, but FLW suggested that Rangers and Celtic have the advantage as they have the ability to snap him up on a pre-contract deal in January.
Since then, Wallace’s contract situation hasn’t changed and he continues to play a starring role for the Lions.
The versatile attack-minded player has featured in all but one of their 13 Championship fixtures so far this season and has produced an impressive haul of five goals and four assists.
His most recent contribution came at Sheffield United on Tuesday night, when he scored the opener in a 2-1 win.
It was a remarkable goal, too, as he found the top left corner from the right flank with what may well have been a cross gone wrong.
🍀 Cross or shot?

Wallace has actually scored in three of Millwall’s four league wins so far this season, all of which have come by just one goal, so he’s played a key part in a decent start to the campaign that’s left the London club eleventh but just three points outside the playoff spots.
It’ll be interesting to see if his efforts have been sufficient to prompt a pre-contract swoop from the Gers in January.
