Rangers Plotting Third Bid For Championship Star: Caixinha Wants Him Desperately

The Scottish Premiership side Rangers, who finished their season in the third position after the champions Celtic and second-placed Aberdeen, are looking determined to revamp their side with a number of new faces for the next season. They are making a clear show of their intent in the summer transfer window and have already brought in six new players in the form of Bruno Alves, Fabio Cardoso, Dalcio and Daniel Candeias, all of whom are from Portugal, along with Scottish midfielder Ryan Jack and Columbian ace Alfredo Morelos.

The Rangers are in no mood to stop their spending spree and are looking to bring in, even more, players and have their eyes fixed on the Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans. Reportedly, they have made two bids so far to bag the influential player, only to see both of them get rejected by the Championship side. However, it seems that the Scottish club is far from giving up on their pursuit to bag the midfielder and are on their way to prepare a third and reconstructed bid to get hold of their desired player in the summer transfer market.

As per sources, the two previous bids had fallen short of the prescribed price of the player, which has been set at £1.5 million by his current club Norwich City. The first bid from Rangers was of the value of £700,000 and the second one was near to £1 million in amount. However, both of them failed to meet the price tag that has been slammed by the Canaries on their prized possession and were immediately rejected by them, to the utter disappointment.

Pedro Caixinha, the current coach of Rangers, has been much fond of the Norwich City midfielder and is looking more determined with every rejection to lay his hands on the player for the next season. The manager is more desperate than ever to finish on top of their arch rivals Celtic in the forthcoming season and has been on a spending spree to rebuild his side completely and throw a challenge towards the defending champions of the Scottish Premiership.

Dorrans has been in good form for the Canaries in the last season, making 38 appearances for them in all competitions and scoring nine goals. He also laid off two valuable assists for his teammates to help them score goals.

The 30-year-old midfielder has also played in the Scottish Premiership in the earlier stages of his career with Livingstone FC and will look to use that experience if required.
