Rangers misfit Graham Dorrans is edging closer to the Ibrox exit with Kilmarnock and an unnamed League One outfit wanting to take him on loan, according to the Daily Record.
The 32-year-old has fallen way down Steven Gerrard’s pecking order and has been told that he can leave the club.
A former Scotland international, Dorrans is now trying to fix himself up with a new club prior to Monday’s transfer deadline.
The midfielder arrived at Rangers in 2017 and has played 23 times for the Light Blues. He has struggled for form, however, and is now deemed surplus.
Gerrard has gone on something of a spending spree this summer, building a squad that is capable of making a genuine attempt to end Celtic’s Premiership dominance.
Given the number of players who have entered the club, it is only natural that some will need to leave in order to balance the books.
TBR Verdict – Dorrans looked a match made in heaven but injuries have ruined time at Rangers
Dorrans made a decent career out of playing football south of the border with Norwich and West Bromwich Albion, earning 11 Scotland caps along the way.
Sadly injuries haven’t helped him during his career and ultimately they have cost him the chance of being a success at Rangers.
Having been at the club since 2017, Dorrans only managed 23 appearances and it is little surprise really that Gerrard has placed his trust in other midfielders.
At the age of 32, Dorrans still has a few years left, however, and if Kilmarnock can keep him fit then they could have a good player on their hands.
There is, of course, the lure of League One that might prove more appealing; although that could depend on which third-tier club is actually willing to take him on loan.
