Billy King reacts after stunning Rangers debut, shares what Warburton told him

Rangers FC Stands

Billy King scored a dramatic winner on Rangers debut against Falkirk today.

New Rangers signing Billy King has told the club's official website that his debut goal against Falkirk was 'unbelievable'.

The Gers moved to snap up 21-year-old winger King on loan from Hearts until the end of the season, and he was brought on as a substitute against Falkirk today.

With the game still goalless after an hour, Rangers boss Mark Warburton decided to introduce King from the bench - and few could have predicted his impact.

The wide man latched onto a James Tavernier cross in injury time to head home the winner, handing Rangers a 1-0 victory over a major title challenger.

King's goal was just what Rangers needed after a frustrating afternoon at Ibrox, and he reflected on his dramatic impact after the game.

Speaking to the Rangers official website, King was delighted to get off the mark for the club immediately, stating that his goal felt 'unbelievable'.

King also revealed what manager Warburton told him before going on as a substitute, stating the Gers boss wanted him to stay wide and take players on - but personally doesn't think he was at his best in his 30-minute cameo.

"Obviously I thought it was going to be a nil-nil but Tav put a great ball in and I managed to score with my head, which was only my second headed goal of my whole career," said King. "So I’m delighted with that, we weren’t at our best to day but the three points is massive and it keeps the gap between us and Hibs and Falkirk."

"It was unbelievable. It just kind of went in slowly, it was in slow emotion. I was just lying on the ground and I saw it hit the net, it was just such a relief."

"He (Warburton) just said to get the ball out wide, be positive and try and create chances. To be honest I don’t think I was at my best when I went on, I gave the ball away a couple of times, but it’s going to take time for me to adapt to the way Rangers play. But overall I’m happy to get the goal and it’s a massive three points," he added.
