20 Mar Rangers defender Wallace aiming high after the lows
Rangers defender Lee Wallace admits confidence within the dressing room at Ibrox is at an all-time low but is determined to bounce back from what has been difficult season for the full-back personally.
Wallace played his part in the 4-0 loss to Hibernian at Easter Road, this Sunday’s opponents, which he concedes is one of the lowest points in his football career.
But he’s also suffered sadness off the park following the loss of his friend Murray D’Angelo in December before his Grandad passed away a few days later.
Wallace says those low points this season help give him the inspiration to aid Rangers in their quest for promotion to the Scottish Premiership.
“We look at how poor things have been as I say it probably can’t get any lower at this moment in time.
“The 4-0 defeat is in the back of our heads as players, it was one of the worst days that many of us have experienced in our football careers.
“Was it my lowest point personally? Yeah, I would say so but I’ve had a fair amount of low points this season both on and off the park.
“I lost my friend Murray during the Christmas period and my Grandad a few days later that certainly didn’t help my mentality through that late December period and into January.
“In terms of the football side of course it’s arguably one of the lowest points in how bad we’ve done.
“Everybody is kicking us we’re not in a great situation, other teams left, right and centre are probably happy at where we are just now.
“So that gives us great motivation as well and obviously with the lower points I look to them as inspiration and as I keep stressing we’ve still got something to go for.
“As long as we can say at the end of the season that we are in the fixture list for the Premiership it’s been job done in this journey over the last three years.”
