Rangers defender Lee Wallace has suffered yet another setback in his return from injury – and it should see the Gers wrap him cotton-wool in hope of getting him fit for next season.

The Gers captain has been out of action since September but the Gers should now do whatever is necessary to get him fit ahead of the new campaign and bring an end to his injury nightmare.

The 30-year-old senior player still has a big part to play for the Light Blues but the constantly niggly injuries are proving to be too much as the Gers try to get him fit again.

With only a handful of games remaining in the season, there’s no need for the Gers to rush him to fitness with Declan John, Lee Hodson and Andy Halliday all capable of playing at left-back.

John has been in fantastic form since his move from Cardiff City in August – and may arguably already be deserving of being first-choice left-back – while the other two can provide cover if necessary between now and the end of May.

Having Wallace fit and ready to go in time for pre-season will be much more important to Graeme Murty – or whoever is manager next season – than trying to get him fit for the tail end of this season.

In other Rangers news, Neil Lennon has revealed he has “major concerns” over potentially facing Rangers three times at Ibrox.
