Rangers Player of the Year: Lee McCulloch




LEE McCULLOCH was the big winner at the Rangers Player of the Year Awards Ceremony when he was named top performer of the season.

The captain was voted Player of the Year by supporters who voted online and he received his award tonight at the glamour ceremony which was sponsored by McEwan Fraser Legal.

McCulloch was an obvious choice for his commitment to the club in the most difficult of times.

When countless other first team stars chose to leave Rangers, McCulloch stayed solid and remained to playing a leading part in the recovery of the club.

He has led by example, of course, and his performances have also been influential and inspirational with 26 goals despite playing at the back and in midfield in many matches.

Lewis Macleod came out on top in the Young Player of the Year category after a fantastic first season in the first team – even if it was curtailed by a bad kneed injury back in January.

He is undoubtedly a player who can have a pivotal role in the future as Rangers strive to return to the top.

Another top performer this season was Lee Wallace and he got the vote from the dressing room as he was named Players’ Player of the Year.

Wallace has been the consummate professional and also deserves great credit for pledging his future to Rangers.

David Templeton scored some fantastic goals this season and it was his super strike against Clyde in February 16 which was voted Goal of the Season.

Andy Little is another who has had a superb season and he claimed the Sam English Rosebowl for finishing leading league goal-scorer with 23 strikes in SFL 3.

There was an emotional moment when the legendary Sandy Jardine won the John Greig Achievement Award.

Sandy is still under-going treatment for his illness and was unable to attend the event, but his commitment to Rangers has been unstinting. Indeed his leadership last year in times of turmoil was inspirational.

There was also a special award presented to 10 lucky supporters who won a competition to represent the fan base who have been incredible this season and continue to be the beating heart of the club.

Davie Weir: Lee Deserves To Lift The Trophy




FORMER Light Blues captain Davie Weir believes Player of the Year Lee McCulloch deserves his moment of success this weekend.

The current Rangers skipper picked up the club’s Player of the Year award last night and will follow that by lifting the Third Division trophy Saturday as the season ends.

Weir, a close friend of McCulloch, reckons the man who followed in his footsteps as club captain should relish the moment.

He said: “Lee deserves it because he’s had the toughest time of any Rangers captain in recent history, to go through what he has been through.

“He’s had to deal with the issues and answer the questions that have been asked so the least he deserves is to pick up a trophy.

“He’ll enjoy that and get the feeling of being a Rangers captain when you lift a trophy.

“I know he would rather it was the top division’s trophy or the Scottish Cup or whatever but he’ll still enjoy the experience.

“He deserves to enjoy it as well after everything he has done and everything he has had to endure in the past year.

“Of course he’s a friend of mine but I genuinely think he deserves it and I’m delighted for him.â€
