GRAHAM Dorrans says signing for Rangers is a moment he has dreamed of since he was a boy.

The Glasgow born midfielder is a lifelong Ger and put pen to paper on a three year deal today to bring him back home at 30-years-old.

With seven years of Premier League experience behind him Dorrans is hoping he can make a personal impact at Ibrox but also with Pedro Caixinha’s young crop of players.

Speaking exclusively to RangersTV Dorrans said: “I want to come in and help the youngsters and I like to think I can bring a bit of experience having played at a high level for the last 10 years now.

“I am confident we have a good enough squad to compete. Hopefully I can come in and help the team, help the young boys develop and help the club get back to where it belongs.

Dorrans recreates his childhood pose in the Ibrox tunnel.

“The manager has been great too. I will play where he wants me to play; I am just excited to come in here.

“I have been chatting to him for the last week or so, and he has been the driving force behind the move. I am looking forward to coming in and working with him.

“I can’t wait to start; it is something I have always dreamed of since I was a kid so I am looking forward to getting into training and getting the boots on. Once that day comes to run out at Ibrox it will be great.

“There are some big names coming in and we’ll get four weeks behind us now training, hopefully we’ll gel quickly and be ready for the first game.”

Dorrans is pals with current Light Blues Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace, having played with both for his country but he say he’s putting his international ambitions on the backburner for now.

The former West Bromwich and Norwich star admitted the duo have been a driving force behind his move, exchanging regular calls before he signed his deal.

He continued:

“Both Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller have been a big driving force behind pushing to get me in here.

“I have been speaking to them both regularly on the phone and they have been speaking to the manager as well, they have been great.

“We have a good squad; we are adding some good quality players so hopefully we can push on.

“I haven’t thought about Scotland, my mind is set on coming here, doing well, getting into the team and playing some games.

“If Scotland happens it happens and if it doesn’t it doesn’t but my main focus right now is on Rangers Football Club and that is what I am looking forward to.”
