Lee Wallace has claimed that the whole Ibrox squad are in harmony.

Reports of splits in the squad have been rife since Pedro Caixinha told a Portuguese newspaper that he wanted rid of 14 players after claiming that he had inherited the best squad in the country.

Apart from Ryan Jack and Graham Dorrans all of Caixinha’s signings have been from Mexico and Portugal with the exception of Columbian goal machine Alfredo Morelos.

While Kenny Miller, Jason Holt and others enjoy wages better than the Scottish average they are dwarfed by the salaries being paid to Bruno Alves and Carlos Pena.

Micky O’Halloran and Barrie McKay have complained about the treatment dished out to players inside Ibrox but according to Waldo it’s one big happy family inside Ibrox.

Naturally, if guys know each other or are from the same country then they will sit together at the same table and have a coffee,” he explained to the Daily Record.

I still sit alongside Kenny Miller, Graham Dorrans and Jason Holt but that doesn’t mean there’s a division – that’s just life.

But in the last three games I’ve seen a real togetherness in the squad. The fans have recognised that and it’s up to us to keep that feel-good factor going. We can only do that by staying together.

We don’t have any one great individual player who will win us a game at this stage but our most powerful weapon is our togetherness. We have cohesion and a good team spirit.

It’s up to us to respond to bad defeats and move forward positively as a group. That might take a bit more time but we’ve definitely been encouraged by the last three games.

We have a long way to go to get to where we feel we should be but we hope we’re going to start the league season strongly.”

Waldo has retained the captaincy at Ibrox but after explaining how Alves was his leader on the park Caixinha has made it clear to the former Hearts defender that his armband is purely ceremonial.
