Former Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans has signed for Australian side Western Sydney Wanderers following his release from Scottish club Dundee.

Dorrans links up with former Canaries midfielder Carl Robinson who is manager of the Australian club and links up with ex-Rangers striker Kenny Miller amongst their squad. 

Speaking on his move Down Under, Dorrans told the Daily Record: “I know the career I’ve had so I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. I just want to enjoy my football again and win some games.”

The Scot played 67 games for the Canaries including coming on as a substitute in their 2-0 win over Middlesbrough at Wembley in the Championship Play-Off. The former West Brom man has been reflecting on his move to Ibrox to join the club he supported as a boy.

Dorrans time at Rangers was hampered by injuries, but he doesn't regret swapping Norfolk for Glasgow.

“If I hadn’t signed for Rangers when I did, I’d have regretted it for the rest of my life.

“Listen, it didn’t work out the way I wanted it to but injuries dictated how my Rangers career went.

“When I look back, it was the right move for me, just at the wrong time, definitely. I would have loved to be involved in the environment and everything that’s there right now but it just wasn’t to be. 

“I knew it was my last opportunity to sign for Rangers and if I didn’t do it I’d have been sitting here full of regrets."
