Lee Wallace is ready to move to England following the bust-up that has cast a cloud over his Rangers career, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun report that the Ibrox captain is “considering options down south” following the seismic events that have seemingly ended his seven-year spell at the Glasgow giants.
It is said that Wallace, 30, is “determined” to clear his name but accepts that he will never play for Rangers again after being suspended in the wake of the weekend Hampden Park dressing room bust-up along with Kenny Miller.
The Scottish Sun report that Wallace will be inundated with offers from clubs keen to take advantage of his sudden new availability.
The 10-times international has missed much of this season with a groin injury but has a fine track record in the Scottish game, including 259 appearances for Rangers.
His contract runs until the summer of 2019.
Football Insider verdict:
A move south of the border is a shock for a player who has spent his entire career in Scotland but actually makes sense. Wallace would be unable to command his Rangers salary elsewhere in Scotland, given that a transfer to Celtic is out of the question, and will see a move to another SPL club as a step down. With a few years left in him at the top level, the left-back would be hopeful of securing a move to an English Championship club. He has suffered from injury problems in recent seasons and has made just seven senior appearances in 2017-18, but the former Hearts man is a fine left-back who has been one of Rangers’ best players over the last half decade, albeit in the most miserable period of the club’s history.
