Dundee are hopeful of landing ex-Rangers star Graham Dorrans, according to reports.

Gers allowed the midfielder to leave the club this summer after bringing in a number of rivals for his position.

Kilmarnock were keen on signing the free-agent but a deal wasn’t done.

Now, the Daily Record are reporting that James McPake is hopeful of bringing some experience to his Dens Park side this season.

McPake played alongside Dorrans during their time at Livingston and is understood to want an older head to lead their push for promotion.

Dorrans also has admirers in the Premiership and down south, so it would mark a significant deal for Dundee if they can seal the switch.
