Former Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans has continued his resurgence Down Under with yet another goal for new side West Sydney Wanderers.

Dorrans, 33, opened the scoring for WSW in their 2-0 win over Melbourne Victory in a result which has lifted the side to 3rd in the Aussie A-League.

This strike followed on from a fine goal against Macarthur in the Aussie club’s last match where Dorran lifted the ball over the opposition keeper in the 1-1 draw.

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.

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.
