Gerrard considers Wallace recall

3rd April 2019, 09:47 by James Mason

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard says Lee Wallace could be handed a first start of the season in Wednesday's home clash with Hearts.

Gerrard will be without left-backs Borna Barisic, who is still sidelined with a hamstring injury, and the suspended Andy Halliday for the Scottish Premiership clash at Ibrox.

This has opened up the possibility of a return to the first-team fold for former captain Wallace, who has not been included in a matchday squad in 2019 and has only played 49 minutes of league football this season.

Speaking about the chance of the 31-year-old being recalled, Gerrard said, as quoted by the Daily Record: "Of course he is an option. He's one of us. He's training. I'll make that decision in the next couple of hours."

Rangers, who are sitting second in the SPL, will also be without the services of striker Alfredo Morelos after he was sent off in the Old Firm defeat to Celtic at the weekend.
