The Lowdown: Gers eyeing Wallace…
As per Football League World, Rangers are one of plethora of clubs eyeing a move for the Championship attacker in January with the Ibrox club even facing competition from Celtic.
The 27-year-old is also attracting plenty of attention from south of the border with West Brom, Burnley, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace, West Ham United and Brentford all interested.
Now, Hutton has reacted, and it’s safe to say he’s impressed.
The Latest: Hutton wowed…
Speaking to FI, the former Scotland international has claimed Wallace is ‘one of the best’ in his division and believes the player could definitely add quality to Rangers.
He also adds that their interest makes ‘really good sense’.
“He’s always been a standout player at Millwall,” Hutton explained.
“He’s been one of the best players in the Championship this season.
“It makes really good sense – especially financially.
“Rangers will want to enhance their squad; they need players that can lighten the load for the current squad.
“The likes of Rangers and Celtic play a lot of games in a season, so they need a healthy squad.
“Bringing in players who can make the eleven even better will only help you.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
Millwall boss has also lauded Wallace as a ‘big game player‘, something Rangers and Steven Gerrard arguably need to take this side to the next level – the lack of ‘big game’ players perhaps reared its ugly head on Thursday night against Lyon.
Able to play across attacking midfield and as a forward, his brilliant start of three goals and two assists in seven Championship outings perfectly sums up why the Gers now want him, bringing versatility and end product to an already dangerous array of attacking talent at Gerrard’s disposal.
