Wallace disappointed with defeat
Rangers captain Lee Wallace said that he is very disappointed with the way his team lost against Celtic.
Indeed Rangers were thrashed 5-1 against their fierce rivals, and Wallace stated that this result is the lowest point of his career. Although Rangers have gone through all kind of humiliations ever since they were relegated to the lowest division of Scottish football, Lee Wallace said that this defeat against Celtic was the worst experience of his career.
Indeed Rangers were hoping to get a good result from this game to mark their return among the Scottish elite, but Celtic was simply too strong for them
Wallace admitted that the last four years has been tough not only for him but also for Rangers. Indeed, ever since their financial issues and their relegation, Rangers have seen all their best players leave them but Lee Wallace has chosen to stay and help rebuild the team.
The captain said that he is proud to have helped the team return to the Scottish Premiership, but he was hoping that their first game against Celtic will end up in a different result. He said that expectations were high in the Rangers camp, but the result has just shown them the difference in class between Rangers and Celtic at the moment.
However, Wallace believes that it is still early in the season, and that Rangers can still recover. Although Celtic may potentially get a seven points lead over them, Wallace believes that the players should keep on fighting. He admits that it will not be easy to win the title, but the players should know that this is a team that is still in construction and that it will take some time before they can be able to challenge teams such as Celtic at the top of the table.
