PERHAPS wisely, Andy King glosses over the details of Jamie Vardy’s house party on the night that Leicester City clinched the most outlandish of Premier League titles in history.

But a couple of weeks at Ibrox are enough to convince him that it really would be the mother of all parties for Rangers and their followers if the Welshman could play a part in stopping Celtic complete nine, or even ten, top-flight titles in a row.

As tempting as it would be to wallow in Leicester's red letter day forever, King would dearly love something else to talk about in his dotage and claiming such a historic title in Scottish football would represent another diverting chapter of his personal life story. Even if the expectation upon Rangers to deliver titles is far higher than it ever was at the King Power stadium.

"You want to be asked about trophy wins,” said King. “At the end of your career, those are the days and nights you remember. That's what people want to speak about and it's what we are working towards here.

"I am still hungry for success,” he added. “When you have a taste of it, you just want it again and again. You don't just want to achieve it and that is that. It's such a good feeling that you want to have it again."

It is pretty clear what this Euro 2016 semi-finalist with Wales brings to the party. “You need people with experience of getting over the line," he said. "The club has been through turmoil. I read the gaffer saying it had been ‘scarred’ with what's gone on in previous years. So the experienced players need to help the young players get through it.

"You will lose games during the season and there will be talk of whether you can win the league or not,” says King. “It's about coming through that. Since the Old Firm defeat, we have bounced back well and shown we are in it for the long haul.

"There wasn't a point in that Leicester season where we thought it wasn't going to happen - because it only became a dream when Tottenham slipped up and we didn't lose again. We just concentrated on our own results. It was never really ours to let go in the first place. Nobody expected us to win the league that year but we did it. If the door is just a little bit open, you need to go and smash it open."

Things, mind you, have been somewhat slow to get started north of the border. The 30-year-old hasn’t started a first-team match since February and has been given a grand total thus far of 52 minutes of the bench in a Rangers jersey. But his veteran nous could well come in handy in a week where the Ibrox side face awkward, if unglamorous, trips to both St Johnstone in the league today and then Livingston in the BetFred Cup on Wednesday night, before the small matter of a home match against Aberdeen at Ibrox.

"There is a lot of competition in midfield but I knew that before I came,” said King. “Coming from a Premier League team, it's not unusual for me.

“I spoke to the gaffer before signing and some of the lads were already 12 games in. I had only just finished pre-season with Leicester so I was always going to be playing catch up.

"We have only lost one game so it's hard to take people out when you are winning. But the manager knows I am fully ready to go when he needs me.

"February was the last time I started a league game, so it's been a while. It's been frustrating but I love being here and the gaffer is giving me a taster.”
