Rangers manager Graeme Murty has confirmed Graham Dorrans, Jordan Rossiter and Ross McCrorie are all in his squad for Saturday’s Scottish Premiership clash with Motherwell after long-term injuries.
Rossiter has been out of action since the start of the season and has struggled to stay injury-free during his time at Ibrox while Dorrans hasn’t featured for the Light Blues since Pedro Caixinha’s final game in charge against Kilmarnock in October.
Murty confirmed the return of all three to his squad for the trip to Fir Park as his side look to get back to winning ways after successive defeats to Celtic and Kilmarnock.
“Jordan Rossiter is in the squad for tomorrow along with Ross McCrorie and Graham Dorrans who are all progressing well,” Murty said as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

The Light Blues are currently ten points behind bitter rivals Celtic in the Scottish Premiership and will be looking to build some momentum ahead of facing Brendan Rodgers’ side in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup at Hampden on April 15th.
Football insider verdict:
Graeme Murty having all three back in his squad is fantastic news for the Gers manager and really strengthens the options available to him in both midfield in defence. With both Dorrans and Rossiter back it could likely mean a return to central defence for Ross McCrorie after David Bates was sidelined with an ankle injury. All three could be huge players for the Gers over the coming weeks and getting them a bit more match fitness before next month’s Old Firm clash will be a big benefit to the Light Blues.
