King eyes Rangers silverware

Rangers
Derby boss Frank Lampard admits they will miss midfielder Andy King after he was ruled out until the end of the season with an ankle injury.

Andy King says Rangers remain a club synonymous with winning trophies and he hopes to pick up silverware during his time on loan at Ibrox.

The Light Blues confirmed on Thursday that they had completed the signing of the Leicester midfielder on a season-long loan, boss Steven Gerrard praising former Celtic boss and now Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers for helping facilitate the move.

The 30-year-old says he will speak to Rodgers about what to expect about life north of the border but already has certain expectations of what he wants to achieve with the Gers.

Having been on loan at English Championship sides Swansea and Derby over the last 18 months, the Wales international says he’s looking forward to playing in Europe.

Rangers are into the Europa League play-off round in the battle to reach the group stages, setting up a tie with Legia Warsaw after seeing off Midtjylland.

King is also keen to add his collection of winners’ medals, having helped Leicester claim their stunning Premier League title in 2015-16, and says a club like Rangers should be collecting silverware most seasons.

“I guess with Rangers you expect to win,” he said. “You have to come in knowing that only winning is good enough.

“Maybe at Leicester, apart from the year we won the league, no-one is expecting us to go out and win week in, week out like we did.

“Yes, it’s a different pressure but I’m experienced enough now and been through enough to be able to deal with that.”

King could make his debut for Rangers this weekend against East Fife in the Scottish League Cup second round this weekend.
