Steven Gerrard might only be in the door at Rangers less than a week, but already he is set to take on the big issues which have caused problems at the club in recent times.
Four Lads Had A Dream, a very credible Gers blog with a good track record on breaking stories, claims that the new Gers boss is set to have a meeting with former Gers captain Lee Wallace on Friday.
Andy Halliday & Jason Holt met with manager Steven Gerrard this morning as he continues to shape his squad for new season
Both players were told teams have enquired about their availability & are free to leave the club

Wallace has been out in the cold at Ibrox after he and his former team-mate Kenny Miller were suspended by the club after a bust-up with then first-team boss Graeme Murty following a Scottish Cup loss to Celtic in April.
Before the bust-up Wallace had rarely featured for the team last season after suffering a long-term injury.
Firstly, Gerrard deserves a lot of credit for meeting with Wallace at the earliest possible opportunity, it shows that he is not afraid to take on the big decisions, which bodes well for his future as a manager.
Secondly, the meeting will surely be a confirmation that Wallace’s time at the club is up. Even though Gerrard was not at Ibrox when the incident with Miller and Murty took place, he will have been informed about what happened and it wouldn’t be a good look to keep him at the club after he was suspended by the Gers hierarchy.
Wallace may have another year left on his contract but the Gers would be doing right by their new boss if they released their former captain on a free, with a clean break and a new start after last season.
