Lee Wallace to report for Rangers training despite lack of SPL football

The full back says he will report for pre-season on Thursday as expected.

Lee Wallace says he will turn up for pre-season training at Rangers on Thursday, despite the uncertainty over which league, if any, the club will play in.

Sone Aluko, Steven Naimsith, Rhys McCabe and Steven Whittaker have already stated their intention to refuse to have their contracts moved over to Charles Green's new Sevco 5088 company, which is attempting to inherit Rangers' membership of the Scottish Football Association.

Rangers definitely won't be playing in the SPL next season, having been told by six clubs they will vote against the admission of a newco into the top flight.

That means Green will be left to apply to the Scottish Football League in the hope of having a team playing professional football, while then hoping the Scottish FA allow them to play.

Wallace though says he is sticking by the club despite the current situation and joins Lee McCulloch in publicly stating he will report to Murray Park this week.

"When I arrived at Ibrox the support from the club, players and fans was fantastic," Wallace told Rangers' official website.

"The fans showed great faith in us all during tough times and I still feel I have more to show them during the remainder of my contract.

"My partner is expecting our first baby soon and my priority is to my family. This gives me the incentive to improve my performance and ultimately win trophies."

Hearts are yet to confirm they have received full payment for selling Wallace to the Ibrox club in the summer of 2011 but, having been left off Rangers' creditors list at the failed vote earlier this month, is remains to be seen whether they will be paid out of SPL and SFA competition money.
