Boss backs Wallace call

The Ibrox skipper has jumped to the head of the queue for next month's World Cup qualifier after his rivals for Scotland's left-back slot Andy Robertson and Kieran Tierney were both ruled out through injury.

Alternatively, Strachan could turn Swansea's Stephen Kingsley or Blackburn utility man Charlie Mulgrew.

But after watching Wallace net the opener in Gers' 3-0 win over Kilmarnock, Warburton insists the Rangers captain would not let his country down in London.

Wallace gave the hosts the opener after 16 minutes when he darted on to a sublime Josh Windass pass to beat Jamie MacDonald at his near post.

"I have no doubts about Lee Wallace," Warburton said. "He is a top-class professional and an outstanding captain of the club so never have any worries about Lee Wallace."
