Former Rangers loanee Andy King has found himself a new club, signing for Belgian side OH Leuven – who are run by Leicester City Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha.

King is a Foxes icon after winning the Premier League and making close to 400 appearances for them before leaving in the summer when his contract ended at the King Power Stadium.

The midfielder had continued to train with Leicester while he looked for a club and is now back in the game with a deal to the end of the season in Belgium.

After falling out of favour at Leicester, King had loan stints at Swansea, Derby, Rangers, and Huddersfield before leaving the club in the summer.

His time at Ibrox didn’t quite go as planned as the Welsh international struggled for minutes at Ibrox before cutting his loan short early and returning to Leicester.

After leaving Ibrox, King was full of praise for the Gers and admitted it was “hard” for Steven Gerrard to change things and put him in the starting XI.

They are a real, good, strong set of lads there – good players, good manager and good staff and I really enjoyed my time there.

“It just wasn’t to be for me in terms of minutes, they just didn’t get any injuries and lost only one game, I think, in the whole time I was there, so it was hard for the manager to change it.”

Leuven are sixth of 18 teams in the Belgian top-flight, 10 points off the top and two behind Rangers’ Europe League foes, Royal Antwerp.

Meanwhile, Rangers will now have the opportunity to go 22 points clear in the title race v Aberdeen but any talk of title celebrations should be shelved until the club actually wins it.
