Billy King marked his return to the starting line up in the game against Queen of the South by scoring the leveller in the match.

The 20 year old winger has made 25 appearances for the club so far this season, but had only been a substitute in recent months, with his last start coming against Livingston back at the end of December.

Speaking to the Official Site with his return to the starting line up providing him with his sixth goal of the campaign on the 32nd minute as he drew us level in the game, the youngster explained that he was delighted to have got back into the swing of things from the opening minute – and he was obviously delighted to have set us on our way to victory with Zeefuik adding the winner shortly before the end of normal time.

‘It was my first start for a while, so it felt good to get game time and get my fitness up. I thought I did well, and I was glad to get the goal. We had a shaky first 20 minutes, but we played some good stuff as the game went on.’

King went on to say that we knew Queens would come at us in the opening parts of the game to try and get ahead and then possibly close the game out, but it was a pretty open affair and after our period of struggle, we started to get on top and use the ball a lot better.

‘We dominated the match in the second half and I thought we thoroughly deserved the victory.’

With King admitting that the message from head coach Robbie Neilson was to keep focused on one game at a time, he did concede that with the players knowing Rangers had won on Friday, it did add a bit of pressure to the game but they tried to stay focused on the game plan and not rush things just because they won.

‘So we did brilliantly to come back and maintain the 20 points lead.’

The battle will be that one game at a time mantra because he admits he’s not alone in now wanting to wrap the title up as early as we can for the team and for the fans, so we can then enjoy the end of the season as Champions – but they know they can’t let that element of anxiousness get in the way of their focus or performances, because of they let that happen then we will trip ourselves up and probably make it harder than we need to.
