Barrie McKay is inching towards his exit from Ibrox – but Rangers are confident of landing Graham Dorrans this week.
The winger was a notable absentee as Pedro Caixinha’s side jetted out for Tuesday’s Europa League clash with Progres Niederkorn in Luxembourg.
But it is understood he is now set to join up with former Gers boss Mark Warburton once more at Nottingham Forest.
A £500,000 initial fee has been agreed for the 22-year-old, who would be free to discuss terms with suitors come January.
The Scotland international is one of Caixinha’s most naturally gifted talents but his manager recently banished him to train with the under-20s. With just a year left to run on his deal, Rangers have decided to cash in now rather than lose the youngster for nothing next summer.
But his slot in the Ibrox changing room will not lie empty for long, with Norwich midfielder Dorrans due to complete a £1.5million switch to his boyhood club.
Gers have been chasing the former Livingston and West Brom man all summer and are understood to have now struck an agreement with the Canaries that will allow the 30-year-old to pen a three-year deal at Ibrox.
