The Wales international came to Ibrox on a season-long loan from Leicester back in August (as per BBC) but was unable to establish himself with the ‘Gers, making just five appearances for the club and failing to start a game.
Having played a paltry 69 minutes of football for Rangers, with his last appearance coming in September and constant omission from matchday squads since the first week of October, the 31-year-old’s loan deal was cut short this week and he has now returned to his parent club (as per Sky Sports).
King’s longest appearances for the ‘Gers both came in the Betfred Cup, having played for half an hour off the bench against East Fife and 18 minutes as a substitute against Livingston. [via TransferMarkt]
Although the Welshman was unable to make an impact at Ibrox, these Rangers fans on Twitter were highly appreciative of his farewell message:
Good luck in the future Andy, you’re some guy 👍🏻

Do you think King was right to leave Rangers or should he have been given more of a chance at Ibrox? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
