Lee McCulloch: I have no regrets over Rangers spell

Former Rangers captain Lee McCulloch insists he has no regrets over his time at Ibrox and revealed he was “first in and last away” at training.

McCulloch spent seven years with his boyhood heroes and was appointed skipper in 2012 after Carlos Bocanegra left the club.

During his time at Ibrox McCulloch experienced playing in a European final as well as being at the club when they were thrown into the fourth tier of Scottish football in 2012.

McCulloch revealed in a Q&A with Rangers’ Youth Development Company on Twitter that he “knew the importance” of playing for the Gers so made sure he came away with no regrets.

“None – I knew the size of the club and what it mean to my family. First in and last away at training. I knew the importance of pulling on the jersey – so I have no regrets,” McCulloch said on the Development Company’s official Twitter account.

McCulloch lifted three Scottish Premiership titles, three Scottish League Cups, two Scottish Cups, Scottish Third Division and Scottish League One before leaving the Gers in 2014 to join Kilmarnock.

The 39-year-old made 303 appearances, scoring 70 times, in an Ibrox career that saw him fill in virtually everywhere on the pitch except goalkeeper.

Football Insider verdict:

Despite coming in for criticism towards the end of his Ibrox career, McCulloch was a fantastic servant to the club and rightfully shouldn’t have any regrets over his time at the club. Even when it was clear he wasn’t as fit as he was in earlier years, McCulloch never gave anything less than 100% at Ibrox and represented the club fantastically as captain. Whether the 39-year-old finds himself ever returning in a coaching role remains to be seen but the former Wigan star will be fondly remembered by Gers fans.
