'Not good enough' - Rangers mainstay delivers damning assessment after SPL start
By Aramide Oladipo
Rangers captain Lee Wallace has heaped heavy criticism on his own team following their poor start to the league campaign and claimed that “it’s not good enough”.
Pedro Caixinha’s men have endured a disappointing start to the new season, only picking up four points from their opening three SPL matches.
Rangers have yet to pick up a league win at Ibrox after losing to Hibernian last weekend before limping to a 0-0 stalemate against Hearts this past Saturday, which was greeted with boos from the home crowd at the full-time whistle.
As quoted in the Scottish Sun, Wallace admits that the team have not started the season in the best possible manner but he is convinced that there is no need to panic.
“Absolutely, it’s not good enough,” he said.

“We would have been looking for a far better start, especially now we’ve had two home games back to back.
“It’s not a disaster for us but we are disappointed there is that gap and we’ve not started the way we wanted to.
“We always demand high standards.
“We recognise it’s not the start we wanted but we are going to be working hard to put that right.”
Although it is very early in the season, Rangers already find themselves five points behind current champions and arch rivals Celtic in the league table.
After completing deals to bring nine new players to the club, the Gers fans would have expected a better start especially after the team managed to pick up three points on the opening day away at Motherwell.
Caixinha’s men will have the chance to bounce back when they face an away trip to Ross County on Sunday afternoon.
In other Rangers news, Caixinha has revealed he has told 22-year-old to fight for Gers stay.
