'Proper Rangers man', 'Announce as POTY' – Gers fans rave about dream debut from 30-year-old
By Harry Sykes
Graham Dorrans enjoyed a dream start to his Rangers career, scoring two goals to ensure his team kept pace with defending champions Celtic.
The lifelong Rangers fan scored his first goal for the club after just four minutes when a cross from fellow new signing Bruno Alves was headed down by Kenny Miller for Dorrans to fire home.
Motherwell equalised through Ben Heneghan in the 40th minute, before Dorrans scored his second of the game in the 58th minute from the penalty spot after Fabio Cardoso was fouled.
That was enough to secure the three points and send the Rangers fans onto Twitter to declare their love for their new player.
The fans were delighted that Dorrans got off to such a fast start in the light blue, and pointed to how much he was enjoying himself as a Rangers player.

Goals were a problem for Rangers last season, and the lack of potency in attack contributed to them finishing in a disappointing third place in the league.
They only managed 56 goals, compared to 74 from Aberdeen in second and a mighty 106 from champions Celtic.
With Dorrans chipping in from midfield Rangers will be hoping to put that right this season, as they try to stick with Celtic in the upcoming months.
The 30-year-old signed from Norwich in the summer for an undisclosed fee which he’s already started paying back.
In other Rangers news, Caixinha has said what he wants to see return to Ibrox this season.
