Steven Gerrard announces latest fresh injury blow for Rangers


Rangers defender Lee Wallace’s injury nightmare is set to continue after Steven Gerrard today confirmed the former club captain has a grade 1 groin strain and is set to be out for ‘a couple of weeks’.

Following his apparent return to fitness after the controversies which dogged him last season, the ex-Hearts left back looked like he’d become an option again for Gerrard to cover at LB, but the latest confirmation of yet more injuries blues really does make us wonder how long it will be before the 31-year old is truly properly fully available again for Rangers.

He said:

“Lee Wallace has picked an injury up in training but he wasn’t in the Livingston squad (and isn’t in the registered UEL squad either). He’s got a grade one groin strain so he’ll be a couple of weeks which is disappointing because he was looking better and better each day so that’ll set him back a short while.”

The former stalwart has had an absolute nightmare over the past season or so. From constant injuries, to serious surgery, to setbacks, to the club controversy and banning, Wallace’s time at Ibrox is becoming something of an ignominious blot on everyone’s copybook, and we really hope he can regain some sense of normality before the end of the month.

But we’re not holding our breath.


  1. I think it's a real shame that it's ended up like this for Wallace. I keep hoping he gets back buy how long before they let him go. He will always be in my mind the one who stayed and fought and hope he gets a chance to play for us again. Even to come on a a sub and be handed the armband would be a nice gesture

  2. Can't believe some of these arseholes saying that Lee's feigning injury and sitting back letting his contract run down . The guy gave his all for the jersey and indeed played throughout his last full season in the team carrying the injury that's caused him all the problems . He deserves more respect .

  3. A few weeks? Let's start the clock now and I suspect we will see Guy Fawkes before Lee then of course he will need another month to get his match fitness. Not his fault I know but I'm fed up hearing our players "not quite ready for Saturday" then still not available 3-4 weeks later. Coulibally being a recent example and Jack being the current one.

  4. We have been plaqued by injuries. We need Rossiter to step up and stay fit. If he gets put out again, that could be all she wrote, for him.
