BILLY KING has joined Rangers on loan until the end of the season from Hearts.

The winger is 21-years-old and has made 87 appearances for the Jambos scoring 13 goals. He has been involved 20 times this season and has netted twice, against Motherwell and Hamilton.

Edinburgh-born King has spent his entire career at Hearts; he made his first-team debut aged 18 in 2013. His move to Ibrox will see him join back up with former teammates Danny Wilson and Jason Holt.

The pacey forward benefitted from Hearts’ new youth policy when the club entered administration and he scored nine goals in the Championship last season, as Robbie Neilson’s side won the title.

He has played for Scotland from Under 15 to Under 21 level, he’s turned out five times for the 21s, scoring once. He was part of Ricky Sbragia starting XI alongside Barrie McKay against Ukraine in November.

King goes straight into Mark Warburton’s squad for Saturday’s game against Falkirk at Ibrox.
