Rangers suspended club captain Lee Wallace and striker Kenny Miller over a reported row with manager Graeme Murty following the Gers’ 4-0 Scottish Cup humiliation at the hands of bitter rivals Celtic – and Wallace turning up in a tracksuit for a showdown meeting with managing director Stewart Robertson gives a hint at the defender’s attitude.
Wallace has been at Ibrox for seven years following his switch from Hearts and will be well aware of the standards expected at the Light Blues and by showing up for a formal meeting dressed in a tracksuit can only be viewed as a bit disrespectful.
STV tweeted video of Miller and Wallace at Ibrox following the meeting on their official Twitter account, sparking a bit of a reaction from Gers fans who were unhappy to see their captain look like he’d just rolled out of bed.

While it wasn’t exactly yesterday, standards were such at Ibrox in the past that players would be expected to show up for training in collar and tie and clean-shaven.
Obviously those have been slackened a bit, showing up to a formal meeting dressed what looks like a giant romper suit certainly doesn’t give off the impression of someone who is going out of his way to impress as his career hangs by a thread.
Wallace has struggled for fitness after an injury in September forced him to undergo surgery and looked to have lost his first-team place to Declan John before Hampden and it now looks as though he has played his final game for the Ibrox giants.
