Does Rangers' coach's key decision suggest ongoing feud?

Graeme Murty and Lee Wallace’s ‘feud’ from earlier this year shows subtle signs of still being present after the ex-skipper was selected for the Rangers reserves but wasn’t made captain.

As we brought you earlier, the lads travelled to St Andrews for the win over Dundee Utd, and there was no sign of either Umar Sadiq or Jordan Rossiter, but Wallace’s place at LB was most intriguing due to Murty’s opting of Cameron Palmer as captain.

Wallace, of course, has been completely vindicated for his part in the Hampden shambles, as was Miller, so we can’t help feeling it was a touch of pettiness on Murty’s part not to give the most experienced player in the team and former captain the armband for a pretty unimportant match.

Wallace deserves a bit more respect, and to be overlooked for the captaincy in such a minor match in the reserve league does smack of a refusal to let bygones be bygones, whatever they actually were.
