Wallace on full spin

Lee Wallace is in full ‘no one likes us we don’t care, but we do’ mode for tonight’s match with Partick Thistle.

Back-to-back wins over Ross County and Dundee seems to have erased the memory of going out of the Europa League to Progres Niederkorn.

A five goal win is expected at Firhill followed by Champions League type celebrations as Pedro Caixinha’s all stars enjoy a few hours squatting at the top of the table.

Wallace has picked up one Petrofac Cup winners medal in his Ibrox career and is shocked at the tough treatment that his latest manager gets.

It seems that Chris Sutton asking the fifth best coach in Qatar about having the best squad in Scotland has touched a raw nerve at Ibrox.

With media czar Jim Traynor at his side Waldo recalled the BT Sport showdown saying: “I remember watching the situation you are talking about and I did feel there was a small part of that, a lack of respect.

I’m not sure if it was Brendan Rodgers standing next to the guys that that might have been the way the questions were going.

These guys are in these jobs for these reasons and we will never complain about that.

We just have to get on with it, keep fighting through that and understand that sometimes that is the way things go, especially being at a top club.

We are always ready for these kind of situations and I think the manager was quite strong and handled himself well.

We always respect whatever the manager says and as an aspiring coach myself I can totally understand where he is coming from.

I get where you guys take it and how you take it, which is fine, but I can totally understand that the manager is showing he has got faith in his players as individuals and as a team.

One day, we want to make sure that he is proven right.”

Going unbeaten through to the end of the season should prove that Caixinha has got it right.

After playing just one top six club in their opening five fixtures Caixinha’s schedule is about to pick up with Celtic visiting Ibrox next Saturday with St Johnstone and Aberdeen to be faced in October.
