Former Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans has signed a new contract with Championship side Dundee after speculation had linked him with a move to England with MK Dons.

Dorrans joined Dundee in the summer after leaving Ibrox and reports earlier this month had claimed he could join former Rangers team-mate Russell Martin in Milton Keynes.

The veteran’s new contract will see him remain at Dens Park until the summer of 2021 after signing a 12-month extension to his existing deal.

Dorrans now wants to help the Dark Blues return to the Premiership and admits that he’s loving his time on Tayside with James McPake’s side.

“It’s been a great period for me, getting back to playing week after week. I’ve really enjoyed my time with the club. The players and staff have been brilliant with me,” Dorrans told Dundee’ official website.

“I’ve bought into and feel excited about what the club is trying to achieve with bringing through the young players. I’m enjoying working with them and helping them.”

“The club’s ambition remains the same as when I came in, to get Dundee back to the Premiership, and I’m hoping to play a major part in making that happen.”

Dundee currently sit fourth in the Championship, four points ahead of fifth-placed Dunfermline, and will be looking to kick on and secure a playoff place at the end of the season.

Dorrans has made 16 appearances so far and scored his first goal in the 1-1 draw with city rivals, and runaway league leaders, Dundee United last month.

After a torrid time with injury at Ibrox, it’s good to see Dorrans back playing regularly again and hopefully, he’s now over his injury problems completely.
