Rangers fans are today disgusted (again) with the board, this time over the complete club radio silence on the retirement of former captain Lee Wallace and a lack of good wishes to him.

The former Rangers hero is still incredibly highly regarded by the vast majority of fans following what he gave us, but of course he was cast out and dumped after the Hampden incident.

It is understandable that, right or wrong, there is bad blood towards him from the Rangers board, but any decent people should have had the goodwill to wish the man well in his retirement, being the ‘bigger man’ as it were.

But the utter absence of any word of support for him has not been received well by supporters who are currently extremely unhappy with this board and pretty much everything it does, understandably.

Would it have killed the board to relay their best wishes to Wallace, to instruct the social media team to put out a little token of appreciation?

Indeed, the lack of one shows the ridiculous disconnect, which is clearly growing, between fans and the board – just because the board might not wish Wallace the best, the fans do, and putting their own wishes before the fans’ is clear contempt for what supporters want.

This is not the board’s club, it’s fans’, and while shareholders technically own it (including Ibrox Noise and many other supporters groups) it’s the fans’ wishes that matter.

Without fans Rangers are nothing – 2012 showed us that.

So give Wallace his damn send off Rangers.

  1. More concerning in this sorry story is yet another peice of very poor secrative and poorly managed incidence by the board again. Its a disgrace the man stood tall when we were stabbed in the back and jettisoned to the 3rd Division, he had other options . I will always be grateful for his contributions to Rangers and his loyalty. I hope Rangers give him the level and status he deserves.

  2. On another separate story that has broken again by the Ibrox Board. We have been fined £250,000 for working or dealing with price fixing on strips etc. . Have we learned nothing from those dark days of Ashley Green and the worst Whyte . We seem to be going backwards . It’s not good the Board need to tell the fans the truth about everything ffs.

  3. Good luck Lee with the rest of your football career, whether its coaching, management or scouting. The Rangers family wish you well and thank you for your amazing work you gave us and wish you were still with us when we got back into the Premier lge. Cheers Lee : – )
