Rangers duo Lee Wallace and Graham Dorrans are in contention to play against Motherwell in their Scottish Premiership fixture next week, according to a report.

Gers blog Four Lads Had a Dream, which is a very reliable source of news about the club, claimed on their Twitter account on Tuesday that the senior duo are ready to give the team a major boost ahead of the clash.

Left-back Wallace and midfielder Dorrans both played and started in the club’s behind-closed-doors friendly against Livingston today (Tuesday) that was drawn 2-2.

It is said that the key duo should have recovered from their long-term injuries to be in contention for the short trip to Motherwell, which is a 12.30pm televised clash.

Rangers will be key for them to get up to speed for the Hampden Park Scottish Cup semi against Celtic on 15 April, which offers Rangers the best chance of ending their trophy drought this season.

Football Insider verdict:

There is no doubt that the injured two would be in the Rangers matchday squad were they fit and available. Would they deserve to make the starting XI? Is Wallace any better than Declan John? Not on this season’s evidence, with the former Cardiff player one of the team’s most consistent performers of the season, although the Rangers skipper is good enough and versatile enough to play at centre-back. Dorrans would certainly be pitched into the best Rangers central midfield, with Sean Goss, Greg Docherty and Jason Holt not quite at their best in recent weeks.

In other Rangers news, the club must blow Celtic out of the water to sign the next Moussa Dembele.
