Graham Dorrans is ready to join Rangers, but Barrie McKay could be heading for the exit door

GRAHAM DORRANS is ready to sign up to become part of Pedro Caixinha’s revolution – as Barrie McKay edges closer to the exit door.

Scotland cap Dorrans, 30, has been targeted by Rangers as a summer transfer. And sources close to the player indicate he is more than open to returning home to join the club he supported as a boy.

A deal would have to be worked out with Norwich City as he is under contract until the summer of 2019.

However, with the Canaries in a transitional period which saw seven players – including Scot Steven Whittaker – told they could leave in the summer, the Light Blues believe that should not present a problem.

In fact, he could team up with current club-mate Steven Naismith, as he is also been drawn to the attention of Pedro Caixinha as a player possessing the sort of feeling and passion for the club he is looking for.

“We’re looking for players with international experience,” said the Rangers mananger.

“That’s what this club is used to, and that’s what we are looking for in the core of the team.

“We need more muscle in our style of play, to explore the wide areas more, to have quicker and more aggressive players up front.

“We need a strong midfield definitely, and we also need to have really combative players at centre-half.

“I want the ones who really want to come. Those who are calling me all the time saying they want to be here with me.

“I want players to come here and become idols, I know what the fans want and what I want. I want those type of players at Ibrox.

“I’m not going to bring a single player who has doubts whether he wants to move here or not.

“We had one player who received a clear offer, and he started what I call an auction: ‘OK, but I have this offer and this offer and that offer . . .’

“Okay. Go. Enjoy your life. I wish you the best. Here is not going to be where you play.”

That very message could be getting delivered to Barrie McKay this week, with the winger due for a face-to-face discussion with the manager on his future.

He is still under contract for 12 months but could be sold on, with RB Leipzig among his admirers, after rejecting the club’s initial offer of a two-year extension.

“Barrie is a nice guy and a nice player. We are assessing him and next week we will have a final answer,” said Caixinha.

“I need to sit with him, I need to sit with the board and make one decision. It’s not a question of whether he wants to sign a new contract or not.

“If I felt that player or other players could stay with us then it is not a question of contract. If he says doesn’t want to stay, then that will be another matter.”

Rangers have meanwhile announced details of their pre-season plans.

“We will be back on June 5. It is official. No more leaks,” said the manager.

“We don’t have time to go away, so we will stay in Scotland from the 5th until the 29th.”
