According to the Daily Record, Graham Dorrans is set for the Rangers exit door. He’s been left at home by Gers manager Steven Gerrard as the rest of the squad fly’s out to Portugal for pre-season.
It seems like Dorrans won’t be a Rangers player for much longer. Given that he’s still under contract, Rangers are likely to want a fee for him.
Will anybody want to pay anything for him though? Given how his Rangers career has panned out, other SPFL clubs should stay away from the former Livingston midfielder.
On his day there’s no denying how good Dorrans is. He’s technically brilliant with an eye for goal from range. There’s a reason why the midfielder established himself in the English game.
That was then though. In the here and now, Dorrans is just too injury prone for SPFL teams to take him. Regardless of ability, what’s the point in having him if he doesn’t play?
Also, given what he’s earnt in wages over the past few years, his wage demands will be high. Only the likes of Hibs and Hearts could table him a realistic offer.
In all competitions last term he played three times. The season before that he only played 20 in all competitions. The midfielder is clearly injury prone, so what’s the point in spending high wages on a player that’ll make the park once in a blue moon?
If anything, a move back down south will be the likely route for him. Teams down there are the only ones with finances to pay his wages, plus any fee Rangers would want for him, if anything.
Whatever happens, SPFL clubs should steer clear of the once brilliant Scotland international.
