- Andy King, Daniel Iversen, Josh Knight, Ryan Loft and Layton Ndukwu feature on loan
- Midfielder King made his Rangers debut in a 3-0 win at East Fife on Sunday
- Iversen kept a cleansheet as Rotherham United beat Burton Albion 1-0 on Saturday

The 30-year-old was a 60th minute substitute for Steven Gerrard's men at Bayview Stadium, who came out on top courtesy of goals from Jermain Defoe, Filip Helander and Joe Aribo.

King, who has appeared 378 times for the Foxes since his debut in 2007, winning titles in English football's top three divisions, will spend the remainder of the 2019/20 season with Rangers.

Following this success, the Gers will head to Almondvale Stadium in September to tackle Livingston in the quarter-finals of the Scottish League Cup - a competition they have won 27 times.

Next up, meanwhile, King could feature for Gerrard's 54-time Scottish champions against Legia Warsaw in a UEFA Europa League Play-Off first leg tie on Thursday evening (7pm BST kick-off).

Elsewhere, goalkeeper Daniel Iversen made his third appearance of the season for Rotherham United during a 1-0 victory over Burton Albion at Pirelli Stadium on Saturday.

The 22-year-old shot-stopper, who featured 45 times on loan at Oldham Athletic last term, is set to enjoy a full campaign of development with Rotherham in Sky Bet League 1 this season.

Saturday's success, which leaves Rotherham sixth with six points, was Iversen's maiden cleansheet for the club, after also starring in a 2-1 win at AFC Wimbledon and 2-0 defeat by Lincoln City.

The Millers were scheduled to face Bury at New York Stadium on Tuesday, but the fixture has been postponed, meaning they next host Tranmere Rovers on Saturday 31 August (3pm BST kick-off).

Finally, winger Layton Ndukwu was a second half substitute for Southend United, who suffered a 4-0 loss to Lincoln City in the third tier, leaving them 22nd in the league standings after three matches.
