Former Rangers loanee Andy King says he’s loving life in the EFL Championship with Huddersfield Town, as quoted by the Examiner Live.

The 31-year-old endured a forgettable loan move with the Gers over the first half of the season.

Brought in to add another option in midfield, the Wales international found himself stuck behind the likes of Steven Davis, Ryan Jack and Glen Kamara, ensuring that he made just five appearances.

After his substitute outing against Livingston in late September, he dropped out of the picture completely.

It was, therefore, no surprise when he returned to his parent club, Leicester City, in January, and secured a new loan move to Huddersfield Town.

He’s since turned out four times off the bench and is now targeting a start.

“I am good to go,” he said, as quoted by the Examiner Live. “I keep telling the manager I am good to go! He knows I haven’t played a lot because of injuries and whatnot but getting minutes like I have in the last couple of games is good.”

“I am really enjoying playing football and being back out on the pitch again. This is a really good club with a good set of lads and a manager who wants to play football the right way.

“I am loving being back out on the pitch and being involved with the team again.”

It seems as though this move to the bottom end of the Championship is set to be much more fruitful for King than his stint at Ibrox.

At 31, he’s at an age where he’ll be wanting to play every week to maximise his remaining time in the professional game.

With that in mind, the Rangers stint was something of a waste, but Terriers boss, Danny Cowley, seems much keener to use him than Steven Gerrard was.

19th in the table and just six points above the relegation zone, Huddersfield are in a somewhat precarious position and will be hoping the midfielder’s experience will help them to avoid a second consecutive demotion.
