The manager of Glasgow Rangers, Ally McCoist, has said that the Rangers skipper Lee McCulloch deserves thanks from the team management for not leaving the club at the time of Liquidation.

In June this year, the Rangers were liquidated and many players left the club due to that. But, Lee and a few other players decided to stick with the Rangers.
Carlos Bocangera who had captained Rangers in the second half of the last season was placed on loan to Racing Santander in September and after that, McCulloch was appointed as the captain of the Rangers.

McCulloch has been playing for the Rangers since the last 5 years. The Rangers had bought him from Wigan Athletic in July 2007. The transfer fee wasn’t disclosed by either of the clubs. McCulloch had signed a contract of four years with the Rangers. McCulloch made his debut for the Rangers against FK Zeta and he managed to find the net in his very first match for the club.

McCulloch didn’t take too much time in establishing himself as a regular member of the Rangers side. In August 2010, his contract was extended for the next two years by the club. McCulloch has been performing brilliantly in the ongoing season and is leading his team from the front.
When asked about McCulloch, Ally McCoist said, “He was one of those blokes who decided to continue playing for the Rangers even after liquidation. He certainly deserves thanks from us.”

“McCulloch is an experienced player and when, Carlos was placed on loan last month, he was the obvious choice for the post of captain. He has taken the responsibility and is leading the team pretty well.”

“His own form has also been pretty good in the current season so far. I hope that he would continue playing with the same kind of form in the further matches as well.”
