Rangers star: “It wasn’t my best game”

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Despite an impressive debut at Ibrox, giving a glimpse of his hard-dig, classy composure and work ethic in the middle of Rangers’ spine, midfielder Graham Dorrans has insisted he was not at his best and better is to come.

The recently-turned 30 year old was pursued by Pedro Caixinha for months before the Portuguese finally got his man, and his debut went pretty well at Ibrox, but the ex-Norwich man played his own display down significantly.

He said:

“I think we stayed in the game, we controlled it for parts of it, we looked solid and we had a few chances in the first half.”

But went onto add:

“Personally it wasn’t my best game but I think as you said the team looked solid.”

If this was Dorrans on an off-day Rangers have a really impressive signing on their hands and it shows just why he was so acutely secured. While everyone can still improve of course, there is nothing quite as inspiring as seeing a good display from a player who then asserts that it was below par.

We look forward to the improvement then!


  1. I enjoyed the game and thought Alves found the game easy – that's what good players do. Fabulous free kick goal by Kranjcar – he is class and his passing is brilliant. Ryan Jack and Graham Dorrans should win the ball and look for Niko to find the killer passes and work like a team in midfield. Pena and Rossiter have still to show what they have got, when given the chance.

    A 1-1 draw against Marseille, a quality French team was actually a good result.

    Good players usually make tactics work and a lot of average ones can make tactics look wrong.

    Let's hope we keep the good work up against Sheffield, Motherwell, Hibs and Hearts. WATP.

  2. Sounds like he happy to be here. Any updates on Halliday? Apart from man of the match in Europe the other night. Who could believe it that he's still in Europe and we aren't and he's the one we sent away

    • Lets hope he stays away! – One of the worst midfielders to grace the shirt in years. He'd give Ian Black a run for his money..

  3. I get all concerned when players get interviewed and they say it wasn't there best game, or I didn't play well? Consistency has always been a problem in the past years and I'm sick of players making excuses. Rangers are paying these players to give their best in every game, not when it suits them!

    Marseille game was an improvement, but we need to play like that in every game, but score more goals.
    As we know, SPFL games is a different animal. Only time will tell if our players can deal with demands of our league, and indeed, Rangers FC as a whole, because Warbuton and his failures couldn't last season, hence 3rd place!

    • Wouldn't bother me. We have better players. If yesterday was them not at there best jist think what there gonna do to teams in the league. Hoping that Motherwell, hibs and Aberdeen can be on the other side of a thrashing this season
