He is not the best LB now, that mantle clearly belongs to wee Tierney but during our rise up the leagues he was by far Scotlands best option.
Too many pig headed people said he shouldnt be selected simply because it was Rangers......and no I dont mean you specifically.
Wallace and some others were international players the day before we were sent down.......then when we were in div 3 people said he should not be selected as he was a 3rd division player BUT he had not played 1 single game in the league yet !!
As I say simply because it was Rangers too many had their tut tut hats on.....instead of picking the countries best LB we opted to play a RB in his position who wasnt even playing. Big mistake.
He was caught out of position Gaffa but that was not down to the actual player but the system and instruction given to him.
All water under the bridge now but it was piss poor the ignorance. Various Rangers players were also ignored for international call ups last year even though they were better than every player in the championship......now I think it was right not to call them up as we did have better options in the midfield but once we get promotion Strachan then selects McGinn who is and was no where near the consistency and levels reached by Holt, Halliday, Mckay and Wallace last year !!!
As I said not saying they should have but how could they be ignored given the performance levels yet McGinn has been getting in and not half the player....and he was still in the division below.
Big part of the reason Strachan has strangled my passion for the national side at the moment.
As I said I dont believe Wallace to be Scotlands no1 LB ever (whether he went down leagues or not)
What other Rangers players are you talking about? (this could be quite funny)
