Rangers have confirmed the loan signing of Leicester City midfielder Andy King as Steven Gerrard adds experience to his midfield.
The 30-year-old Welsh international is Leicester’s longest-serving midfielder and an absolute club legend.
Needless to say, there was an outpouring of support from their supporters after King joined Rangers.
it's a shame as in the interview he did you could tell he wanted to break back into the Leicester squad, as he considers the club family, he also looked good in pre season, hope he help Rangers beat Celtic.

Great to see Kingy join the Scottish Premiership's best club.

Be great if he won league one, the Championship, the Premier League AND the SPL all while employed by Leicester.
Good luck Kingy

Maybe one step too high kingy, Celtic would’ve been a better place to go as you’d have more chance of getting in. Good luck regardless pal.

Rangers are short in midfield. Joe Aribo, Ryan Jack, Steven Davis, Glen Kamara and Greg Docherty were previously vying for three places.
The comments from the Leciester supporters are incredibly encouraging.
It shows King to be a loyal, hardworking and reliable player, whilst his stats show him to be pretty useful technically too.
King is Leicester’s all-time top scoring midfielder with 62 goals in 379 games.
He also brings a wealth of international experience to the side with 50 caps and two goals for Wales, and was a part of the Welsh side that reached the Euro 2014 semi-finals.
The midfielder has spent the last two seasons on loan at Swansea and Derby respectively. He was sold on the Rangers move by ex-Ibrox hero and former Derby teammate Martyn Waghorn [RangersTV].
Whilst fans might’ve been initially perplexed by the signing, when you strip it back it starts to make more and more sense.
Gerrard wants at least two players in each position.
The question now is, which one of the three does Gerrard see King playing in?
