Glasgow Rangers summer recruit Graham Dorrans has been given support ahead of the new season by former Ibrox man Charlie Miller.

The Gers confirmed the signing of the Scotland international last week and the midfielder has already picked up plenty of backing since returning to his homeland.

Dorrans became the ninth transfer of what has been a busy summer for Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha, joining the likes of Ryan Jack, Bruno Alves and Carlos Pena as new additions with the Scottish giants.

Despite the quality that has been brought into the club, former Rangers player Miller believes that the former Norwich City midfielder must be a first-team regular with the club he supported as a boy.

“I think he will be a very good addition to the squad and the team,” he was quoted as saying by the Sunday Herald.

“We know what Bruno Alves and Ryan Jack will bring to the side but the rest of the boys we don’t know a lot about. Alves, Jack and Dorrans will make a big difference and improve the team.

“It has been a frustrating start obviously but Dorrans is a good football player and I am glad he is up the road. He wants to play for Rangers and he should be a good signing.

“He will definitely be one of the first names on the team sheet so hopefully he can hit the ground running and help the boys out.”

Dorrans was made to wait before securing his much sought after move to Ibrox but eventually made the switch from Norwich, signing a three-year deal at Ibrox.

The delay meant that the 30-year-old missed the Gers’ exit from the Europa League last week and Miller seems sure Rangers really missed the Scot in Luxembourg.

“He is a quality player and it is up to him now to go and express himself and show the fans what a good player he is and what he can do for Rangers,” he continued.

“Hopefully he does well.

“Rangers have to do better than they did in Luxembourg and having a player like Dorrans in there will help.

“He has got a lot of football left in him so hopefully he can give a good account of himself and help Rangers have a good season.”

Dorrans will bring experience of more than 350 matches to Ibrox for the coming season in a career which has seen him score 60 goals at club level.

Rangers fans will be hoping there is much more in him as the club looks to put the humiliation of last week behind them ahead of the upcoming domestic campaign.
