Report: Massive injury blow as key Rangers man major doubt for Dons double

By Guy Giles

Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans is a major doubt for the Gers’ Premiership double header against Aberdeen after a setback in his recovery from an ankle injury.

The Daily Record understand that Dorrans is to see a specialist this week as his ankle has not healed as quickly as first thought, with the Scotland international now set for a few more weeks on the sidelines.

Dorrans sustained the injury during Pedro Caixinha’s final game in charge of the Gers, a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock, limping off after a challenge from Alan Power, and he has already missed wins over Hearts and Partick Thistle.

The 30-year-old midfielder has been a key figure for Rangers this season after his £1.35million transfer from Norwich over the summer.

Dorrans has played 10 times in the Premiership, scoring five goals and laying on two assists from the middle of the park.

If Dorrans receives bad news on the injury front then whoever is in charge, whether that be caretaker Graeme Murty or the new Rangers permanent boss, will have to do without him for a few weeks.

Depending on how bad the injury turns out to be, Rangers may be without Dorrans for the key double-header against Aberdeen at the end of November/beginning of December.
