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.
Captain Graham Dorrans to the rescue as he gives @wswanderersfc the lead from the spot.
His 2nd in as many games, dispatching penalties is something he done in his time at @RangersFC so no pressure.

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.
