Rangers boss Caixinha in regular contact with 30-year-old goalscoring midfielder - report
By Harvey Byrne
Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has made Norwich midfielder Graham Dorrans his top transfer target this summer, according to a report.
The Daily Record have claimed on Sunday that the 30-year-old goalscoring central player has been reassured by Caixinha that he’ll do everything needed to get him to Ibrox.
It s detailed that the club’s chiefs are still attempting to sort a deal with the Cananries for their player and that they will make a £1.2million bid for the 11-time capped Scotland international.
It is also understood that Dorrans himself is keen to move back to Glasgow due to being a lifelong fan of the famous Ibrox club.
This has led to Caixnha being in “regular contact” with the former West Brom ace, who is currently on holiday in America and he has told Dorrans that he plans to make him an integral part of his squad.

The Portuguese March appointment has looked to overhaul the squad which finished third in the last campaign and he has already brought in Fabio Cardoso, Ryan Jack, Bruno Alves and Dalcio this summer.
He may now be looking at Dorrans, who scored six goals in just 23 Championship appearances for Norwich last season as the perfect next addition for his revamped squad.
Football Insider verdict:
Dorrans has proven in England that he is a quality player and at 30 he should still have enough in the tank to contribute in Scotland. The midfielder is the type of player who you wouldn’t have been too surprised to have seen Celtic sign a few years a go and therefore this addition could be pivotal to helping the Gers close the mammoth gap with their fierce Glasgow rivals. Furthermore, last season showed that Rangers needed to add more to their midfield and while they added both Jon Toral and Emerson Hyndman on loan they need more experience like Dorrans in the centre.
