Derby County forward Martyn Waghorn has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Glasgow Rangers bringing Andy King to Ibrox on loan from Leicester City.

As announced on Rangers’ official website on Thursday night, King has joined the Gers on a season-long loan deal from Premier League outfit Leicester.


The 30-year-old Wales international midfielder is a very good midfielder with extensive experience in the Premier League.

King has been a success in the top flight of English football and won the league title with Leicester during the 2015-16 campaign.


Derby forward Waghorn played with King last season, and he is pleased to see his former teammate join his ex-club.

The midfielder was on loan at the Rams from Leicester during the second half of last season.

Waghorn was on the books of Rangers from 2015 until 2017 before he joined Ipswich Town for a transfer fee reported by The Scottish Sun to be worth £9m.

The former England Under-21 international forward moved to Derby from Ipswich in 2018, and last month, Rangers manager Steven Gerrard told The Scottish Sun that the 29-year-old is worth £9m.
