Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans has been ruled out for the next three months following ankle surgery.

The 30 year old last featured for the club back on October 25 after being substituted during the first half of the game against Kilmarnock.

Striker Kenny Miller could also miss the Old Firm at the end of December against Celtic with the hamstring injury he’s picked up.

Speaking to the BBC earlier today, caretaker gaffer Graeme Murty explained.

‘The end of the year and the game at Celtic may come too soon for Kenny Miller. We may have to alter transfer plans as we were expecting Graham to be back. Those conversations are ongoing but this may change the tone of them. We initially went down a conservative route on his ankle after medical advice.’

Murty went on to say.

‘Unfortunately that did not bear fruit and he’s now undergone a surgical procedure that will leave us without him for an extended period of time. It’s a sore one for him as we were really hoping the first course of treatment would work and that hasn’t turned out to be the case.’

As for Miller, stretchered off in the game against Hibernian, Murty added.

‘We’re hopeful it’s not as big a tear as it looked, because it looked big. But he has quite a big range of movement and we’re hopeful he’s not going to be out for too long.’
