Ex-Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans has led by example in the land of Aus as the former Ibrox star opens his account Down Under.

Dorrans is now turning out for the Western Sydney Wanderers in the Australian A-League and scored a beauty as he chipped the opposition goalie from just inside the opposition half.

Appointed captain of the club, Dorrans, 33, clearly still has plenty to offer and the sunshine of Australia makes a change from Ibrox with Rangers or Dens Park with Dundee, where he played before moving abroad.

Dorrans’ strike made the score 1-1 in the match against Macarthur and the game would eventually finish 2-2 leaving WSW 4th in the Aussie top tier.

The midfielder made the move to the club February this year and signed a two-year deal with the Red and Black.

“I’m delighted to be coming over and grateful for the opportunity to play for the club,” said Dorrans [WSW].

“After speaking with the manager (Carl Robinson) and hearing the vision he has for the club and the way he wants to play I think it’s a brand of football that really suits my game.

“It’s a league I have watched from a distance and really enjoyed watching it so I’m looking forward to getting over and starting as soon as I can.”

West Sydney Wanderers are currently managed by Welsh boss Carl Robinson but the Rangers connection doesn’t end there with ex-Ibrox striker Kenny Miller Robinson’s assistant.

Miller moved to Sydney with Robinson when the ex-Newcastle Jets manager was poached by the Central Coast club in October last year.

Miller revealed he took the job after being in a “bit of a funk” over the last few seasons and has previously spoken up the project Down Under.
