After Rangers’ emphatic win over Queen of the South today at Palmerston, manager Mark Warburton has confirmed Lee Wallace’s worrying withdrawal through injury is unlikely to be serious and the Ibrox captain was taken off purely on a precautionary basis.
Wallace felt something go at Queens’ byline early on and struggled thereafter till the 33rd minute when manager Warburton elected to remove him entirely, and the boss confirmed it was purely on a ‘better safe than sorry’ motion.
“We don’t have an update on it; we’re going to have a look at it now. It was more a precautionary (action, taking him off). It happened really early in the game, two minutes in. He’s a very important player for us, Club captain, so we’ll look after him.”
With Waldo, as he is affectionately known, in such absolute stellar form this season and leading the Club by example, he is a player whose leadership would be missed and fans and management alike will be hoping the scans come out negative for anything serious.
