Portsmouth keen on signing released Rangers midfielder as free agent

Kenny Jackett’s Portsmouth are among a number of clubs who are hoping to land Graham Dorrans on a free transfer, as reported by a British daily tabloid newspaper The Daily Express, via footballscotland.

The midfielder, who has represented his country 11 times, as per Transfermarkt, has been released by the Gers and so is available as a free agent.

Fleetwood Town, Kilmarnock and Bolton Wanderers are also said to be interested in landing the 32-year-old in order to strengthen their rosters for this season.

Graham only managed three appearances in all competitions for Rangers last campaign, with the longest of those being 56 minutes, as the star missed a total of 348 days with knee injuries, as per Transfermarkt.

Dorrans was also out for 156 days during the 2017/18 term due to ankle issues, though the midfielder did make more of an impact that campaign, playing 20 games, netting five goals and assisting four times

His last campaign in English football was for Norwich City in the EFL Championship during the 2016/17 term, in which he played 24 games in all competitions, scoring six goals and picking up one assist.

Graham may have shown that he can be an effective player during his career, but it seems as though whoever secures his services may not be able to get much playing time out of him, judging by his last two campaigns.

If Pompey do get him then they should only use the midfielder sporadically in an attempt to keep Graham fit across the campaign.
