LEE WALLACE praised the Rangers fans for their phenomenal support that was evident in the win over Falkirk on Saturday and in every game the Gers have played this season.

Gers captain Wallace and the rest of the Rangers players stayed on the pitch after the final whistle to applaud supporters in the four stands at Ibrox after the match, something that is becoming a feature at every game this season.

Speaking to RangersTV, Wallace explained: “The fans are right behind us and it’s been a feature of the campaign so far, everywhere that we’ve went, whether it’s away from home or here at Ibrox they’ve been superb. 

“Obviously the fans will be tense at times and that’s completely understandable and it’s up to us as players to reverse that and get them doing what they do best, because it has a great knock on affect when if we do what we can do, they can do what they do best.

“It’s great again and what we have to stress is that whilst we know that we can perform better, but we need to enjoy these moments, perhaps more so for the guys in the dressing room who have maybe suffered a little in the last couple of years. 

“We’ve got to enjoy every success that we can at Ibrox in front of those home fans and we’ve got to savour those moments.

“We did that at the weekend and it’s nice to come off the pitch again and be applauding the fans because rightly so they deserve every bit of success that they get and we will do our best for them between now and the end of the season.”

Wallace scored his fifth goal of the season against Falkirk, but he was modest about what was a rocket of a strike that gave the Bairns keeper no chance.

He said: “It was another lucky one, kind of like my Livingston goal where I’ve actually managed to shoot though a couple of bodies. It was good to see it hit the back of the net.

“I actually got a bit of a fright because it’s not normal for me that I score those kinds of goals!

“After I scored, I’ve ran away to the fans and it was similar to the goal that I scored in the Old Firm because it was the same stand, but not quite on that level though. Running away and seeing all of those fans was a really nice moment again.

“I’m just more than happy to get nine wins from nine and we can move into a little break now, recharge the batteries then make an assault on the next part of the season.”
