Rangers facing battle to complete Dorrans deal

As reported by The Daily Record, Rangers have a struggle on their hands if they are to land Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans.

What’s the story?

The Light Blues have been incredibly hard at work over the last week in attempting to bring in the targets that Pedro Caixinha has identified he needs to help mount a serious challenge for the Scottish Premiership title next season.

One such player is Graham Dorrans, a boyhood Gers fan who appears to be coming to the end of his time with Norwich City.

However, The Daily Record say that Sheffield Wednesday are now considering making a move for the 30-year-old and that they could be willing to force the issue by meeting the valuation set by their Championship rivals.

That’s a blow to Rangers’ ambitions of landing their man. Signing up Dorrans would be another ambitious statement of intent from the Ibrox club who have already brought in Portuguese legend Bruno Alves and the captain of a team who finished above them in the league last season, Ryan Jack from Aberdeen.

Ultimately the fact they are competing with clubs at the top end of the Championship is a good sign for supporters but they’ll be hoping they can fend off the reported interest of Wednesday and land a midfielder who would have a massive impact on the first team.
