We almost sigh in exasperation as we begin this breaking news, but, yes, Steven Gerrard has once again confirmed Graham Dorrans ‘has had a setback’ and the prognosis is unknown.
Dorrans was expected to return at the end of last month, but having managed some training sessions has found himself back in the injury room and quite honestly we’re bewildered if we’ve ever seen anything like this before.
The playmaker has had more potential returns than HMRC and frustration has become intense over his inability to stay fit for more than about a week.
Of course sympathy goes to the player who is suffering in a dark hell because of this, because of the apparent breakdown of his body and inability to retain fitness for any length of time.
“Graham Dorrans has had a setback but we’re not sure the extent of that just yet.”
The Dorrans saga is an injury tale we can only compare with the likes of Daniel Prodan (RIP) and in the year and a half since he joined Dorrans has only managed 23 appearances, up there with Jordan Rossiter.
We continue to be lost for words over the former Scotland international.
