Andy King turned down "a few options" to sign for Rangers

New Rangers signing Andy King has revealed he turned down offers from other clubs to move to Ibrox this year.
The in-demand midfielder became Steven Gerrard’s tenth signing of an eventful window and will bring Premier League experience – and of course a winner’s medal – to Ibrox.
And whilst Kingy can bring plenty to Rangers this season, the midfielder believes Rangers will be giving plenty back to him.

“I’m delighted to be here; the size of the club and the manager speaks for itself,” King told Rangers TV.

“I had a few options, but when a club the size of Rangers comes in, it makes the decision really easy.
“I wanted to come here and have a real chance to try to win various amounts of silverware and hopefully play in European competitions. That was a massive pull for me.”

The midfielder also said he spoke to good friend and former Rangers star Martyn Waghorn about the move to Ibrox.
Naturally, the now Derby forward gave a glowing recommendation of life in Glasgow and it helped sell the move to the midfielder.

Whilst King didn’t make it clear who was interested in his services, the midfielder has spent the last two seasons on loan at the likes of Swansea and Derby.

When you compare those two clubs – as iconic as they are – to Glasgow Rangers, there’s only one winner.
