Rangers have confirmed the loan signing of Leicester City midfielder Andy King as Steven Gerrard adds experience to his midfield.

King was part of the Leicester City squad which journeyed from League One to the Premier League title and has even enjoyed Champions League football with the Foxes.
Needless to say, there was an outpouring of support from their supporters after King joined Rangers.

 


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.

Whilst fans might’ve been initially perplexed by the signing, when you strip it back it starts to make more and more sense.

Rangers are short in midfield. Joe Aribo, Ryan Jack, Steven Davis, Glen Kamara and Greg Docherty were previously vying for three places.
Gerrard wants at least two players in each position.
The question now is, which one of the three does Gerrard see King playing in?
