Chris Sutton believes Rangers defender Lee Wallace has not been at his peak form this season and will struggle against England on Friday night.

Football’s oldest rivalry is set to take place at Wembley, with Scotland travelling to London to take on England in a World Cup qualifier.

Rangers left-back Wallace will be hoping for a starting berth against Gareth Southgate’s men in what will be a tough and feisty encounter.

But former Celtic striker Sutton believes the Gers senior man will be in for a tough night, especially against a number of high quality wide players.

“Left-back Lee Wallace has not been at peak form for Rangers and had a really poor match against Ross County last weekend,” Sutton wrote in his Daily Record column.

“Adam Lallana is a player I really like. He’s clever, hard working, talented and has been playing really well for Liverpool. I’d have him right up against Wallace because he’s just too good for him.”

Wallace has made 17 Scottish Premiership and League Cup appearances for Mark Warburton’s side this term, where he has scored one goal and assisted four.

The Edinburgh-born player has appeared on seven occasions for his country following his debut in 2009.

The Scotland international played the full match as his club side put in a lacklustre display against Ross County last Sunday.
