West Brom determined to keep Dorrans

Baggies boss Roy Hodgson says they have no interest in selling midfielder

Graham Dorrans has been linked with a move to Glasgow Rangers

West Brom manager Roy Hodgson says he has no plans to sell midfielder Graham Dorrans.

Reports have linked the Scottish international with a move to Glasgow Rangers in the January transfer window.

"You want to keep your best players, you don't want to see them go"
- Roy Hodgson

But Hodgson says there has been no official interest in the 24-year-old, who played a crucial part in helping the Baggies to promotion in the 2009/10 season.

"Graham has an important part to play at the club," said Hodgson. "The speculation about Rangers, that's all it is really. We've had no contact with anybody from any other club, let alone Glasgow Rangers.

"We've got no interest in losing Graham Dorrans. You want to keep your best players, you don't want to see them go. He's a good player.

"His Premier League time has been a bit unfortunate in terms of injuries but he's free from injury now and I believe in him very much."
