Rangers assistant boss David Weir has lauded Lee Wallace’s consistency by stating that everyone takes for granted the left-back’s all-round displays every time he steps out onto the pitch.

Wallace, who has helped Rangers to keep nine clean sheets in their last 15 matches in all competitions, has also been in fine form going forward.

The 28-year has scored nine goals in the present campaign, with three of those coming in Rangers’ last three outings; he has also managed to provide 11 assists in 39 games this season.

And Weir, who heaped praise on Wallace’s consistent performances in the ongoing campaign, admitted that the defender is a vital member of the Rangers squad.

“Lee has been another one whose standards have been high week in, week out and you almost take it for granted now that you're going to have that level of performance”, Weir told Rangers TV.


“Allied to the goals that he scores and the positions he gets in, he's a very valuable member of the team. Lee's done great.”

Wallace, whose present contract with Rangers runs until 2017, joined the club from Heart of Midlothian in 2011.

He has since amassed 201 appearances in all competitions for the Scottish giants, netting 22 times and setting up 47 goals.

Wallace also has seven senior caps for Scotland to his name.
