Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight that Graham Dorrans has returned to action after five months on the sidelines.

The club’s academy Twitter account revealed early on Wednesday afternoon that the midfielder had been named as an over-age player in the starting XI for the youth team against Brentford at the Glasgow giants’ training centre.

Dorrans was joined in the side by fit-again skipper Lee Wallace and fellow senior players Jak Alnwick, Andy Halliday and Lee Hodson.

Dorrans quickly became a fans’ favourite when he joined Gers last summer from Norwich and he was a mainstay of the team in the opening months of the campaign.

However, his season was wrecked as he suffered an ankle injury during the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock in October – Pedo Caixinha’s last match in charge – before going under the knife in December.

The 30-year-old hasn’t kicked a ball since but his selection against Brentford B is a major boost in the final months of the season.

Rangers fans took to social media to express their satisfaction that the goalscoring midfielder was back playing.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
