Glasgow Rangers’ pair Kyle Lafferty and Graham Dorrans could have played their final matches for the club after being left out of the squad for the pre-season trip to Portugal, according to The Herald.

The experienced Gers duo were seen as big signings when their returns to Ibrox was announced, but both have struggled in recent times, and it would appear that their time with the Scottish giants is up once again.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has selected a squad to head to Portugal to begin their preparations for a big campaign to come, but there was no room for either of the veteran players, suggesting that he may be planning to move forward without them.

Lafferty was expected to be a key feature under the former Liverpool star, but he struggled last term, scoring just six goals in total and failing to displace Alfredo Morelos and then latterly Jermain Defoe from the Gers side.

It has been a period to forget for Rangers midfielder Dorrans, who missed a lengthy period of time with a big injury, meaning that his time at Ibrox never really got going ,despite the high hopes both parties will have had when he arrived from Norwich City.

The former Scotland international could only make three appearances for the Gers, in what was a frustrating season for the 32-year-old.

Lafferty still has a year remaining on his contract at Ibrox, but it would appear that he will be leaving Rangers early, to continue his career somewhere where he is going to be more of a regular.

The Gers, who are expected to be busy in the transfer market over the next month, are already building for a big season both domestically and in Europe, and it would seem that the campaign will be played out without the veteran duo being a part of it.
