‘100x better than what we have’ - Rangers fans react to reported talks with Championship ace
By Derek Smithson
Rangers are reportedly in talks with Norwich about bringing Graham Dorrans to Ibrox – and the club’s supporter are delighted on Twitter with the speculation.
Sky Sports claim that the Gers are “in discussions” with the Championship club about the midfielder and that they are closing in on a deal.
It is understood that the 30-year-old is keen on a return to Scotland, despite still having two years remaining on his contract at Carrow Road.
The report details that Rangers are also in talks with Mexican club Guadalajara about signing their 27-year-old midfielder Carlos Pena.
Pedro Caixinha is keen to bolster his squad in the summer and is moving quickly to do just that.

Would be delighted if Dorrans deal goes through. Quality player. We still need some middle to front quality & goal threat though imo

Dorrans began his senior career in Scotland with spells at Livingston and Patrick Thistle, before carving out a strong career in English football.
The 11-time capped Scotland international is currently plying his trade at Norwich and the central midfielder is considered an important player for them.
He made 24 appearances this season across all competitions and chipped in with six goals.
Rangers are set to lose loanees Jon Toral and Emerson Hyndman over the summer, which has led Caixinha to chase some midfield replacements already.
Dorrans would be competing for a spot alongside the likes of Josh Windass, Niko Kranjcar
