Graham Dorrans still deserves a chance next season despite injuries meaning Rangers have had to cope without his experience in the middle.
He’s made just one appearance all season in the Scottish Premiership, but that experience is something that Steven Gerrard should hold dear as the club look to win their first major trophy since the 2012 downfall.
The 32-year-old has a contract until the end of next season, so why not see how he returns for pre-season training and give him a chance to prove the injury hasn’t brought a premature end to his career? Actually, despite some of the naysayers, it’d be a waste to let him go now.
His experience might just have been the missing ingredient this season, and it could be what drives them to win the title next term. Any lack of transfer funds means Gerrard is bringing in young talent on loan, so they need Dorrans to guide them. Indeed, even the Rangers camp have been talking up the former Norwich man.
The pressure of playing for Rangers is huge and it’s down to the most experienced players to make sure it doesn’t get too much for the team. It looks like it has on a number of occasions this season, particularly the Scottish Cup quarter-final games against Aberdeen.
Scott Arfield’s experience this season has helped the midfield of two seasons ago to move forward. Add Dorrans to that formula and we could see Rangers move one place up in the table once again, but this time there’ll be a trophy waiting for them.
