Former Dundee and West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans is coming back to Scotland after leaving Australian club Western Sydney Wanderers.

The A-League side say the 34-year-old returns to Scotland ‘on compassionate grounds,’ despite having a year to run on his contract. Dorrans left Dundee for Sydney last year, having earned 11 caps for Scotland and turning out 189 times for West Brom earlier in his career. Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas is sad to see Dorrans go.

He said of the midfielder’s exit: “Graham was an outstanding professional during his time with the club and we thank him for his service and wish him well on his return to Scotland.

“In the best interest of the player and his family we made this decision with Graham to ensure we can progress with certainty this season in our squad planning and recruitment.”

 

Dorrans departs the A-League after 23 appearances, scoring four times.
