Rangers have made the transfer of Billy King on loan from Hearts official.

The site states that King will go straight into the squad and will be available to play on Saturday.

So, there you have it. The most logical Scottish transfer of all time finally happens, albeit on loan. There's no mention thus far of any word on whether there's an option to buy in the deal, or whether or not Rangers will look to do so in summer, although we should be hearing from the man himself and Mark Warburton later on.

We're still a wee bit unsure about signing players on loan from Hearts, although we don't doubt that Billy will give us a boost and get plenty of gametime for the rest of the season. His rate of assists alone is quite something, so hopefully he'll be able to fit into our team. Have a look at where he might fit in to the lineup.
