After a season of pain, the landlord here at The Transfer Tavern has had to console Rangers fans round the bar on many an occasion. They’ve had to watch their arch-rivals Celtic hoover up silverware recently but they’re beginning to enjoy themselves again as the club make themselves busy in the summer transfer window.
The Light Blues have already confirmed four signings in the close season, adding talent they believe can bring them closer to Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.
They’re not done yet though and appear determined to sign one man in particular – Norwich City’s Graham Dorrans.
The Scottish Sun report that after the Canaries rebuffed a £700,000 offer for the Scottish midfielder last week, Rangers are set to return with an improved seven-figure offer of £1.2m.
It highlights Pedro Caixinha’s determination to land the midfielder, who is a boyhood Rangers fan and would likely go down a treat with the Ibrox support.
The Light Blues’ midfield has been accused of being lightweight this season and after the acquisition of Ryan Jack, Dorrans could potentially help turn the middle of the park into one of Rangers’ strongest areas.
Dorrans has years of experience in the English Premier League and Championship and compared to the likes of Andy Halliday is a significant upgrade.
Rangers fans – what do you think? Is Dorrans worth pursuing with improved bids or should the club move onto other targets?
