Check out the highlights of Lee’s session…
Q – David Toner – What is your best memory as a Rangers player?
A – Signing for Rangers and making my debut in the Champions League qualifier and scoring. Also, experiencing my first Old Firm game and winning
Q – Jordan Speirs – best goal you ever scored for Rangers?
A – Aberdeen at home in the league. It was a 30-yarder. Also, my late equaliser at Celtic Park and we went on to win the league
Q – Grant Donaldson – what was your favourite moment playing for Rangers?
A – So many – any cups or leagues we won. Especially winning titles on the last day of the season. Champions League and UEFA Cup games – I have been very lucky
Q – Gary Valentine – Do you think you made the jump into club management at too high a level? Looking back, starting at a lower level you could have been allowed to make more mistakes without the risk of being sacked?
A – You have got to try and start as high as possible – and learn as much as you can from your mistakes. I was privileged to be given the chance
Q – Snagsy – How different was your role in Poland from your previous one at Killie? Are there a different set of challenges and how do you manage those on a day-to-day basis?
A – Hi Snagsy – being manager and assistant manager are completely different roles. In Poland there were so many different nationalities in the dressing room and it was about managing all the different cultures. More responsibility as a manager
Q – DJ – I really like big Lee and it really bothered me the stick he got towards the end of his Rangers career
A – There are such high expectations at this club and that’s what happens when you don’t win games. I had the chance to say goodbye and thanks properly at the legends game. I feel I didn’t get the chance to say goodbye properly before
Q – Aidan Milne – what’s your biggest regret whilst playing for Rangers?
A – None – I knew the size of the club and what it meant to my family. First in and last away at training. I knew the importance of pulling on the jersey – so I have no regrets
Q – Colin – Best player you played against & with? What’s Alex McLeish’s biggest challenge (apart from winning games)?
A – Best played with – Barry Ferguson. Ability, mentality he had everything. And David Weir for setting an example to the team on how to be a Ranger on and off the pitch. The same way Sandy Jardine did.
Best against – Ronaldo and Messi. Iniesta and Ronaldinho
Alex McLeish – Getting a togetherness like the last time he was in charge. And the same mentality on the park as the last time. Qualifying for a major tournament
Q – Allan – Most difficult opponent?
A – Barcelona – with players like Xavi and Iniesta. Although there were some tough games when I was at Wigan in England
Q – Graeme – Best player you played with at Rangers?
A – Barry Ferguson for his ability and David Weir for his leadership and standards. So my two captains when I played here
