Rangers take on Kilmarnock on Sunday in their final SPL fixture of the season.

With second place already long sewn up, there’s not a great deal of pressure on the match. Although, admittedly, it would be nice to end the season on a seven-game winning streak.

After the weekend win over Celtic, Steven Gerrard stressed there would be changes at Rugby Park.

He’s yet to elaborate on those comments, but he revealed to RangersTV that several players are carrying injuries.

Therefore, the door may be ajar for a long-awaited return for Graham Dorrans.


The 32-year-old midfielder finally resumed training several weeks back, having been sidelined since September with a serious knee injury.

Then, there was further progress last week, when he started for the Reserves as they clinched the league title away at Falkirk.


There was also a bounce game against a Chelsea XI earlier this week which he was likely involved in.

With minutes under his belt, he should now be ready to return to first-team football.

A substitute appearance may be more likely than a start. However, whether it’s a farewell appearance before a summer move or a platform from which to build ahead of the final season on his contract [Transfermarkt], it would be good to see the Scotland international back in the famous jersey at the weekend.
