Resurgent ex-Rangers star continues goalscoring form Down Under

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.
