Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans is set to be out injured for the forseeable future with an ankle injury.
The news was broken by interim manager Graeme Murty in his press conference today ahead of tomorrow’s game against Hamilton.
As reported by Rangers’ official twitter account, Murty reported that the player has had a scan, and there is ‘no timescale at the moment but will share as soon as the results are out.’

The news is a blow for the Scottish international who was expected to be a key man at Ibrox this season.
The player began his career at Livingston, before winning a move to West Brom in 2008. He then moved to Norwich in 2015.
Dorrans was signed by former ‘Gers boss Pedro Caixinha in July from Norwich City, with the fee believed to be £1.3 million.
He had an ideal start of his Rangers career, scoring both goals in the Scottish Premiership opening day 2-1 victory over Motherwell.
The midfielder has scored nine goals in 11 games for Rangers so far this season.
Graeme Murty will have to do without Dorrans as he goes for his third win in a row as Rangers caretaker manager, with a match at home to Hamilton.
The Gers previously defeated Hearts 3-1 and Partick Thistle 3-0 under Murty’s guidance.
