Sky: Rangers submit bid for Championship midfielder

By Derek Smithson

Rangers have made a formal offer for Norwich midfielder Graham Dorrans, according to a report.

Sky Sports claim that the Gers have made a bid for the 30-year-old as they continue to show their intent this summer, as cited by their official Twitter account.

It is understood that the Scottish giants have offered “just under £1million” to Championship club Norwich for their creative midfielder.

Dorrans has been on the radar of the Ibrox outfit recently and they have now stepped up their pursuit with an offer close to seven figures.

The 11-time capped Scotland international is still an important player at Carrow Road, but suffered with injury mid-way through last season.

The central midfielder managed 24 appearances across all competitions for Norwich and scored six goals in return.

Caixinha has already recruited Bruno Alves and Ryan Jack this summer to bolster his squad, with the manager set to oversee a huge overhaul of his squad.

Football Insider verdict:

Alves is set to bolster the Gers defence and Jack should bring some stability to the midfield, but Dorrans could be the best signing of the three if they get him. The Norwich midfielder is still a top quality midfielder and would give Rangers some brilliant creativity from the centre of the park. The Ibrox side have lacked flair all season and need a driving force that can link up with the attackers. Dorrans has carved out a brilliant career in England and would be able to make a brilliant transition to Scotland, starting out at Livingston as a youngster.
