Rangers fans react as Graham Dorrans reportedly told he can leave Ibrox

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has reportedly told Graham Dorrans he can leave Ibrox.

It seems four senior Rangers players are on their way out of the club after being left at home for the club’s pre-season training trip to Portugal, as reported by the Scottish Sun.

Eros Grezda, Kyle Lafferty, Jason Holt and Graham Dorrans have all been told to find a new club.  The news on Grezda and Lafferty is no surprise. Neither looked up to it at Rangers under Steven Gerrard and will not be missed by fans. Holt, according to the report, could reunite with Mark Warburton at QPR. So he seesm to be in a good place.

For Dorrans however, Rangers fans are certainly disappointed for the player.

Rangers spent a reported (Sky Sports) £1.3 million to sign Dorrans in the summer of 2017.

It was an exciting move at the time for the Scotland international with bags of Premier League experience. A boyhood Rangers fan, Dorrans was over the moon at the move.

Things started with a bang. Dorrans scored twice on his debut and went on to score five goals and assist a further two in his opening 10 league games for Rangers. He looked like being a potential Ibrox star.

However, injuries have been a major issue for the 32-year-old. An ankle injury impacted his first season at the club. Last season, he played just three times after a serious knee problem.

Rangers and Steven Gerrard need to clear some of the deadwood and right now it seems Dorrans fits into that category.

Fans on Twitter certainly have mixed views. Some Rangers supporters feel he is worth another go this season. Others believe the time is right for him to leave Ibrox and for Gerrard to have his wages off the books.

But it is clear he will leave with the best wishes of all the Rangers support, who will undoubtedly wish Dorrans could have stayed fit at Ibrox…
