Leicester City midfielder Andy King is the latest name to leave Ibrox Park after the Premier League loanee was returned to parent club Leicester [Sky Sports].
The 51-cap Welsh international’s game time has been limited since joining Steven Gerrard’s side in the summer and King has made just five appearances for Rangers – all of them from the bench.
A legend to the Leicester City faithful, King will return to the King Power and the 31-year-old will have to find an alternative solution to his situation down south.
An exodus set for Ibrox Park?
Rangers fans are expecting an exodus of sorts this January with a number of names expected to leave the club in the transfer window.
New sporting director Ross Wilson has spoken about the need to move players on to reduce a bloated squad with a bloated wage bill.
King’s departure is unsurprising given the fact the player joined the club to get game time but had been unsuccessful.
A lot of this comes down to the startling form of the midfielders at Ibrox with the likes of Steven Davis, Ryan Jack, Glen Kamara, Joe Aribo and Scott Arfield largely sharing the positions.
Midfielders such as Greg Docherty and Matt Polster are also expected to leave the club in the window.
The likes of Eros Grezda and Jamie Murphy are other names being considered for the exit door whilst players like Andy Halliday and Jon Flanagan will do well to win longer contracts.
King’s exit follows that of fringe winger Serge Atakayi, with the young Finnish international’s departure rankling with some supporters.
Whatever the case, rest assured Andy King won’t be the last player leaving Ibrox during this transfer window.
