I like Dorrans and if we can get him back to fitness I'd love to have him back in the team. Mental to talk about these being his final games.

Dorrans will be ahead of Doc, Rossiter and McCrorie in the pecking order mate and will be excellent back up to the 4 currently holding the jerseys.

Mark my words.
A fully-fit Dorrans would certainly be an asset, so I'm happy that we are keeping him.

That said, I'd have hoped that Rossiter would be given a chance to shine.

16 games in the league last season and 5 goals. Not a bad return for a midfielder.
Two were penalties and they were against diddy sides, so lets not start sugar coating things.

I'd love it to work but we're looking to go to the next level here, that means a serious investment of about 4/5m into that CM position. The belief that an ageing Dorrans is going to progress us is pie in the sky.

A fit Dorrans will be an excellent addition, in the brief spell he was on the park v Vilareal this season he showed what he will offer, pulled of a pass that required ridiculous vision and technique.

Being able to lash him on against 10 of the 11 sides we face each season will be grand for us.

We’ll see.

Lets not forget last season where he barely kicked a ball for us and was yards off the pace. There’s little to suggest that changes.
I'm willing to judge him once fit and ready for Gerrard's team. Our whole club was a complete basket case last season so it's no comparison.

Just like Davis was off the pace in January/February until he got some much needed match fitness.

We'll need a minimum of 8 midfielders for nexr season and Dorrans will be one of them.

As McAllister said in the presser, he'll be like a new signing mate.
Yep if we get to the group stages a decent squad will be vital.

Davis
Kamara
Jack
Arfield
Mcrorie
Dorrans
Docherty
Rossiter

That’s not too bad

Delighted to have Dorrans back and in my opinion is one of the only players at the club who likes to shoot from outside the box plus he can hit a free kick, he is an asset

It kinda is. With injuries and suspensions he'd play 20 games.

Gerrard would be happy.
Dorrans would be happy enough.
The bears would be happy.so where is he going and why?
He's probably one of the highest earners at the club and the money could probably be better spent elsewhere.

Dorran’s has had a lot of false starts to his Rangers career.

Signed a week after Progres having had no pre season.

Badly injured against Killie by Power who went unpunished.

Rushed back by Murty, injures again.

Misdiagnosis of Killie injury, further surgery.

This time he has been wrapped in cotton wool, worked hard with Milsom to get back up to full fitness before being put back in to bounce games. You hear Gerrard talk about loading. They have got it right, I know Doza’s pal Al and I know he is absolutely itching to get involved and get his career back on track.

OK, so we do what? Pay him off? Spend 3 million on a replacement? give him 2/3rd of Dorrans Salary? Hope he not only adjusts to play for us, avoids injury and get's up to speed quickly, but that he can oust Arfield or Davis. And then we can tempt him to extend his 3 year deal to Dorrans wage, and hope he stays in form to be able to at least break even or hopefully make a profit on him.
And all that is the best case scenario.
Seems easy enough.

I'd rather have a fit and up to speed Dorrans trying to keep Davis or Arfield out the team.

The majority of our spending from here on in should be on 2 strikers, a centre half and a left back in my humble opinion.
Knocking one out in yer hand is better than a promise of letting you knocking one in in the bush, or something like that!

He’s not and never going to be the Dorrans of WBA .

He’s suffered badly through injury just can’t see him being anymore than a bit player even if we get him fit.
This will be his last chance.

It could be different this time as he absolutely has not been rushed back like he has previously. I hope it works out for him.

Apologies in advance. But last chance at what? Avoid assault from a thug?
How do you do that conversation if you are the gaffer?
"You better not get viciously assaulted from behind again and left in a crumpled mess by a hammer thrower or yer oot the door!"

It's ok, if he doesn't put in a man of the match display surrounded by the youth team and fringe players, and score a hattrick in a 3-2 win your little poodles will follow me around for a fortnight on every thread I post on asking "aye, but wit aboot Dorrans", so don't take it to heart. :)

Heaven forbid the qualified medical and coaching professionals at the club use their expert opinion to let him play on a plastic pitch against the know it alls on here.

Plastic pitches are poor however some folk on here go OTT about them

Brilliant footballer.

If he can stay fit over the summer he’ll be a great asset for next season.

Was better in the games under Pedro than a lot give him credit for. And there won’t a whole lot who did anything under Pedro.
