BBC pundit: Rangers ace was best Scotland player against England

By Harvey Byrne

BBC pundit Steve Thompson has claimed that Rangers ace Lee Wallace was Scotland’s best player against England on Friday evening.

The left-back played the full 90 minutes of the clash at Wembley as Gordon Strachan’s team fell to a 3-0 defeat.

His display was one that caught the eye of former Rangers and Scotland man Thompson, who stated the 29-year-old was “Scotland’s best player on the night.”

“Scotland’s best player on the night after a long absence from the international scene,” wrote Thompson in his player ratings feature for the BBC.

“Offered a real threat going forward and worked tirelessly.”

Wallace has made 17 appearances for Mark Waburton’s side this campaign providing four assists and scoring one goal from his defensive position.

The Scottish giants have returned to the top flight in impressive form this season as they currently sit in third place.

However, supporters will be keen to see the famous club compete at the top of the pyramid again with fierce rivals Celtic currently 11 points ahead having played a game less.

The Gers will face Dundee on Saturday, who are currently battling for survival as they sit in 11th and one point above bottom placed Ross County.
