‘Wal­lace has taken me un­der his wing’

Evening Times - - SPORT -

JOR­DAN HOUS­TON is thank­ful for the words of ad­vice from Rangers de­fend­ers Lee Wal­lace and Gareth McAu­ley as he bids to make his mark at Ibrox.

The 18-year-old has spent time with Steven Ger­rard’s first team squad this term as the Light Blues boss keeps a closer eye on some of his up-and­com­ing stars.

But it was the chance to play along­side McAu­ley for the Gers sec­ond string that was a real learn­ing curve for Hous­ton ear­lier this sea­son.

The full-back has also taken on board the mes­sages from for­mer Ibrox skip­per Wal­lace and is pleased with the progress he is mak­ing for his boy­hood he­roes.

Hous­ton told SportTimes: “I have known Lee a lot longer than I have known Gareth, hav­ing been for­tu­nate enough to be in­volved with the first team pre­vi­ously.

“Lee has given me great ad­vice on how to help dif­fer­ent as­pects of my game and has taken me un­der his wing when I have been with the first team and helped me get in­volved.

“Gareth was with the 20s when he was re­turn­ing to fit­ness and he has been great and given me some really good ad­vice. I really ap­pre­ci­ate that from both of them.

“Gareth has had an in­cred­i­ble ca­reer so it was great for me to be able to play along­side him. I was de­lighted to get that chance and he really helped me and all the young lads through the game.”
