Rangers stars’ Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace’s spat with the Ibrox giants is “ongoing” according to their representative – and his comments might just give a hint into Wallace’s future with the Ibrox giants.
PFA Scotland boss Fraser Wishart revealed, as quoted by the Daily Record, that the issue over an alleged bust-up in the wake of the Scottish Cup final thrashing by Celtic is still “ongoing” but couldn’t elaborate any further.
With both players having received fines last week, it was hoped that would be the end of it as Miller’s contract comes to an end this summer and club captain Lee Wallace was widely expected to move on.
Wishart’s revelation adds a new twist to it – but it could very well be that the “ongoing” issue relates to talks over settling Wallace’s contract a year early and avoiding any further fallout.
The PFA are largely bound by confidentiality so can’t say a huge amount but if the Gers’ skipper is still in dispute with the Gers then it would make perfect sense to try to come to a mutual agreement to part ways and draw a line under the whole thing.
While neither player is likely to struggle to find a new club if they are free agents, there’s a real argument to be made that unless someone is willing to match Wallace’s wages then he could dig his heels in and sit tight for 12 months.
Agreeing on a deal to call it quits early avoids that, lets the 31-year-old move elsewhere and brings the whole farce to an end.
