Former Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans could be set to join Championship side Dundee after they made an ambitious move for the former Scotland international, according to a report.

According to the Daily Record, Dundee boss James McPake wants the 32-year-old to bolster his side’s promotion push after he was released from his Rangers contract on deadline day.

Dorrans has suffered a torrid time with injuries since his return to Scottish football and struggled to make an impact at his boyhood heroes.

McPake and Dorrans were team-mates at Livingston years ago and that could help seal the deal with the veteran star to join the Tayside club.

 

Rangers youngster Josh McPake recently joined Dundee on loan and he could be joined by a familiar face soon.

There has also been interest in signing Dorrans from Kilmarnock while reports have also suggested that Portsmouth, Bolton and Fleetwood Town have all shown interest in bringing the midfielder back to England.

If Dundee can land Dorrans it would be quite a coup for the Dens Park side and would be a massive boost in their bid to return to the top-flight at the first attempt.

Signing Dorrans – and keeping him fit – could really give them the edge over city rivals Dundee United in the race for the Championship title and it’s unlikely many Rangers fans would have any complaints at Dundee United having to spend yet another season in the Championship.
