Rangers must part ways with senior star after resolving major issue
Rangers’ long-running disciplinary issue involving Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller looks to have finally come to an end after the pair were fined by the Ibrox giants – and it’s now best if the Gers part company with Wallace this summer after the row.
Miller and Wallace were both hit in the pocket, according to Sky Sports, after a row with then-manager Graeme Murty following the Scottish Cup semi-final thrashing by Celtic at Hampden.
Despite suggestions the pair may contest the sanction, the Gers need to look at making a clean break and allowing Wallace to resume his career elsewhere – with Miller set to leave anyway after his contract ended.
The club captain suffered an injury-hit season last term and could face a struggle to displace Declan John in the starting XI as Steven Gerrard’s revolution gets underway.
After sticking by the club in 2012 when they were thrown out of the SPL and into the Third Division, Wallace’s name in the club’s folklore is assured and it’s a shame to see his seven years with the club end so acrimoniously.

A return to former club Hearts could be a possibility or even a move to Scottish Premiership new boys Livingston but after everything that has gone on over the last few months, it would be best for Rangers and Wallace to come to an agreement to let him move elsewhere a year before his contract is up.
Of course, if Wallace sees a future for himself at Ibrox then it is up to the left-back and manager Gerrard to decide if there is a place in his squad for the skipper but it is difficult to see a way back for him after spending much of the last two months suspended by the club.
