Rangers handed huge boost ahead of clash against Hearts
By Harry Sykes
Lee Wallace has given Rangers a major boost ahead of their Scottish Premiership clash against Hearts on Saturday.
The Ibrox skipper, 30, has returned to training following a thigh problem that has kept him out of the team’s last two matches.
Manager Pedro Caixinha revealed that left-back Wallace trained with the physio on Monday before joining the squad for a group session this morning (Tuesday) at the club’s Auchenhowie headquarters.
The Portugese reported no other injury concerns in the wake of the tempestuous 3-2 defeat to Hibernian at Ibrox on Saturday.
“Lee Wallace was back training on Monday with Steve our Physio and will be back with us from Tuesday morning. Apart from Lee everyone else is fit,” Caixinha told the official Rangers website.

Wallace suffered the injury in the warm-up last Wednesday ahead of the team’s 6-0 Scottish League Cup triumph against Dunfermline.
Lee Hodson took the captain’s place on the left side of defence after switching from the right, with James Tavernier restored to the team.
Wallace will now hope to feature against Heart as Rangers look to bounce back from the loss to Hibs.
