Former Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans has vowed to help out ‘top top quality’ Ibrox loanee Kai Kennedy at new club Dunfermline.
Dorrans recently returned from a stint in Australia with Western Sydney Wanderers for family reasons and following interest from various clubs in Scotland and England, opted to sign for the Pars.
He’s moved to East End Park on a two-year deal and is looking forward to getting games under his belt, with their Championship opener away at Morton coming up on Saturday.
Dorrans will be playing alongside Kai Kennedy, who recently joined on loan from the Light Blues, and Rhys Breen, who moved to the Championship club from Ibrox for an undisclosed fee earlier this week.
The 34-year-old has bags of experience after spending years in the Premier League with West Brom and Norwich City and he wants to help both young players to improve.
“Rhys is a big, strong, athletic defender and Kai Kennedy is a very good footballer,” he told reporters. “When I was at Rangers he was just filling out and growing but he seems to have got himself in the gym and bulked up a bit.”
“The feedback I’ve got is that he’s done well in his loan spells, so hopefully he can come in here and help us out as well. There’s no doubt he’s got top, top quality.
“Hopefully, I can come in and help them. It’s a young squad and hopefully, I can give little bits of advice to these boys as well.”
Rangers fans will be watching the progress of Kennedy closely this season.
The Gers seemingly managed to keep West Ham at bay before sending him out to the Pars to continue his development.
He still has just 30 senior appearances to his name following loan stints at Inverness Caley Thistle and Raith Rovers last season, so advice from a senior pro like Dorrans could go a long way as he sets about trying impress and to help Dunfermline to promotion.
