Rangers FC signed more than a dozen players during the summer transfer window which meant that a number of the deadwood left the club.
And now it seems that the process of cleaning up the dressing room is not over yet.
According to the latest reports, left-back Lee Wallace will be on his way out of the club in January.
Lee Wallace has not played a single game this season after he was sidelined late last campaign following an altercation with then manager Graeme Murty.
Since that time, Wallace has appealed to the SPFL regarding his punishment and has also come out victorious.
But as things stand, the 31-year-old has no place in the first team squad under new manager Steven Gerrard.
Before the start of the season, Gerrard had made it clear that Lee Wallace would be welcomed back to the squad once he cleared his differences with the board but the player’s relationship with the management has since worsened and the left-back has one foot out of Ibrox.
According to rumours, Championship side Wigan Athletic are interested in signing Lee Wallace and will make a move for him during the January transfer window.

Wigan boss Paul Cook has identified Lee Wallace as his long-term solution to the left-back problems and he is hoping Steven Gerrard will have no problems in letting the player leave.
Steven Gerrard currently has Borna Barisic as his first choice left-back and even though the player is out injured we do not expect to see Lee Wallace playing for the first team anytime soon.
The manager also has the services of Jon Flanagan who is quite capable of playing at left-back meaning there’s heavy doubt if Lee Wallace will ever make an appearance for the Light Blues.
The fans too think it is time for the club to part ways with Lee Wallace instead of making him rot with the reserve team.
Wigan Athletic should have no problems in bagging the services of the left-back provided that they are willing to match the transfer money that Rangers want for Lee Wallace.
