Dundee United manager Robbie Neilson has refused to rule out a move for Lee Wallace, but is fully aware that the Rangers left-back will not be short of offers.
Former Gers captain Wallace is set to depart Ibrox this summer having been on the fringes of Steven Gerrard’s side after both he and Kenny Miller were suspended by the club following an alleged dressing room row with then boss Graeme Murty in April 2018.
Neilson was a team-mate of the 31-year-old’s during their time at Hearts and has been linked with Wallace, who was given a standing ovation from Rangers fans when he came off the bench for only his third appearance of the season in last Saturday’s win over Aberdeen.
However, the United boss, whose side have booked a place in the Premiership play-off semi-finals and will take on either Ayr United or Inverness, would expect to face competition for his signature should they choose to throw their hat in the ring.
That is by no means certain, though, as Courier Sport understands at this stage Wallace is one of a number of out-of-contract players on the Tangerines’ radar.
Neilson said: “I know Lee well from my time at Hearts and he’s a very good player.
“I’m sure Lee will have a lot of options, whether it be Scotland, England or abroad.
“He’s still a very good player and he was back in the squad at the weekend. There will be a lot of teams interested in Lee.”
