Former Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans has signed for Dundee.
The 32-year-old midfielder left Ibrox on deadline day following the mutual termination of his Gers contract.
He arrived in Glasgow from Norwich City in 2017 as something of a marquee signing, but injury ravaged his stint with the club.
During the 2018/19 season, he turned out just three times before a knee problem kept him on the sidelines for the remainder of the campaign.
Then, in a crushing blow, after he returned to fitness ready for pre-season, it was made clear he was no longer part of the first-team plans.
A long few months ensued, where his only action came in the Development side. With no bids forthcoming from other clubs, the Gers eventually paid up his contract.
Initially, there were reports that he was likely to join Kilmarnock [Daily Record].
However, no such move materialised and now he’s off to the Championship.
He’s signed a deal until the end of the season to play under his former Livingston teammate James McPake, and he could feature for his new club as early as tomorrow.
The Dee, who are currently fifth in the Scottish Championship, travel to Greenock Morton for a 3pm kick-off.
Dundee fans celebrate Dorrans capture
The signing has cause quite a stir on social media, with plenty of Dundee fans expressing their delight at what is something of a coup.
Dorrans is injury prone and short of game time. However, at his best, he is a quality operator with both Premier League and international experience.
