Rangers look set to sign Leicester City’s Andy King on-loan as former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers agrees to send the industrious midfielder to Rangers.
A pivotal part of the title-winning Leicester side of 2015/16, Andy King’s reportedly imminent arrival backs up comments about a lack of midfield depth made by Steven Gerrard in the pre-match press conference looking forward to the tie with FC Midtjylland.
And by sending the 30-year-old – who has a wealth of Championship and Premier League experience – Brendan Rodgers appears to have done Rangers a favour.
Gerrard has spoken consistently about getting two quality players in each position and he clearly sees Andy King as one of the final pieces of the squad’s jigsaw.
King has also been capped 50 times by the Welsh national team and is a club legend at Leicester.
Apart from two recent loans at Swansea and Derby, the midfielder has spent his entire career at Leicester City and is the club’s highest goalscoring midfielder ever.
King joined Frank Lampard’s Derby side on loan in January last season but after only playing four times the midfielder injured his ankle and was ruled out for the season.
Now set to join Rangers on-loan for the campaign, the midfielder will be fighting fit and desperate to make an impression.
