Graham Dorrans is the subject of interest from Fleetwood Town, Bolton Wanderers and Portsmouth following his release by Rangers on transfer deadline day, according to the Express (September 3rd, page 59).
The Scottish giants released a statement on Monday afternoon which confirmed they had terminated Dorrans’ contract by mutual consent after an injury plagued two-year stint in Glasgow.
The midfielder made just 23 appearances and scored five goals for Rangers following his switch from Norwich City in the summer of 2017 for a reported fee of £1.3million.
It has now emerged that the 32-year-old is attracting interest from a string of League One clubs, with Fleetwood, Bolton and Portsmouth all thought to be keen on landing the experienced midfielder’s signature.
This comes after Dorrans’ expected move to Kilmarnock broke down after the Scottish Premiership side realised they could not afford his wages, according to the same report in the Express.
It is a shame that Dorrans’ switch to Rangers ultimately did not work out, as it would have been a dream come true for him to seal a move to his boyhood club.
However, the midfielder must now keep looking forwards and a transfer to League One could well turn out to be a productive move for him if he can keep his fitness levels up.
Dorrans has a wealth of experience in the Premier League and Championship, so he would surely be an asset for any side in the third tier if he has managed to overcome the worst of his injuries.
Bolton have already recruited a wealth of players following their takeover, and Dorrans could provide the Trotters with some valuable know-how in midfield as they look to steer clear of relegation. This could be a great move for the midfielder to resurrect his career.
