Rangers: Alan Hutton questions Andy King signing

Rangers: Alan Hutton questions Andy King signing - Pundits Choice

Former Rangers defender Alan Hutton has questioned the signing of Andy King. 

The 30-year-old midfielder joined the Glasgow giants on loan from Leicester City in the summer transfer window, as reported by BBC, but has been something of a fringe player for the club so far.

All four of the Welshman’s appearances have come from the bench, and he was an unused substitute in their 5-0 win against Aberdeen on Saturday.

Hutton believes that the addition of King was a strange one, mainly due to the fact that at the time of his arrival Rangers already had plenty of options in central midfield.

Speaking to Football Insider, the former Scotland international said: “It’s strange because he obviously wants to come and play football and the thing with Rangers is they’ve got a lot of midfielders.

“It’s going to be difficult to break into it, we all know he’s got quality, he’s not played as much as he would have liked and is coming for games.

“I think that’s one of the most difficult areas to break into in the Rangers team, they are playing with the three and to have, say, 10 midfielders, it’s always going to be difficult.”

Hutton certainly has a point. Rangers have the likes of Ryan Jack, Steven Davis, Greg Stewart, Glen Kamara and Joe Aribo in their squad. Added to that, they also have Scott Arfield and Andy Halliday who are capable of filling in when required in midfield.

However, one thing King, who currently has 50 caps for Wales, does have is experience of winning a major title which could be crucial if Rangers are to end Celtic’s domestic dominance.

You can never have too many winners within your squad, and having won the Premier League title with Leicester City, the contribution King makes in the dressing room could be extremely valuable towards the end of the season.

That experience could also be used on the pitch too. With 94 Premier League appearances and 50 international caps for Wales in his locker, King certainly has great experience at the top level.

Will Rangers win the league?
