Rangers have signed Billy King from Hearts on loan until the end of the season.

Newly-signed Rangers winger Billy King has told The Scottish Sun that he can succeed at Ibrox.

King has joined Rangers on loan from Scottish Premiership side Heart of Midlothian until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old is confident that he will be an asset to Mark Warburton’s side, claiming that the Gers’ system of playing with two wingers will help him.

“At Hearts I played wide, but there the gaffer usually only played one wide player,” King told The Scottish Sun. “Here the manager likes to play two wide players and I think I have a good chance if I work hard in training and hopefully I will get a few games.

“I can play anywhere behind the striker too in the ‘hole’ position if you want to call it that, or I can play on the right or the left. It will be brilliant and it will be a different experience for me.”

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 53 points from 21 matches.

The Gers are five points clear of second-placed Hibernian and are favourites to win the league title this season. The Glasgow giants will face Falkirk at Ibrox in the league on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Hearts, who got promoted from the Scottish Championship at the end of last season, are currently third in the Scottish Premiership table with 41 points from 23 games.

Robbie Neilson’s side will take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle away from home at the Caledonian Stadium in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.
