Rangers ace Jason Holt has insisted his team-mates are all working towards a common goal – after reports of a dressing-room split.
Recent reports have claimed there was a split between the domestic and foreign players in the Ibrox changing room but Holt rubbished those and pointed to the 4-1 win over Hamilton as evidence of the togetherness within the squad.
Holt was a second-half substitute in the win over Accies and won a penalty for the GErs not long after replacing Carlos Pena in midfield.
Graham Dorrans coolly slotted the spot-kick home to put the seal on a comfortable win for the Gers, who went a goal down within 60 seconds.
Holt is now one of the longest-serving players at the club and admits he is one of the first to welcome any new signings to the club.
“I always think of myself as the type of guy who would be welcoming everyone who comes in the door.” Holt told RangersTV, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“I always do that with the new boys who come in.
“There are maybe three or four of us who have been here longer than others, but we are altogether now and we have a good team spirit.
“[The Hamilton win] shows good signs. From the outside, people were saying it had been a difficult week for us, but we had to go and do our job, and go down to Hamilton and get the three points.
“That’s exactly what we did and I thought it was a really professional performance after not getting off to a great start.”
The former Rangers mainstay has struggled for game-time under Pedro Caixinha so far this season after two years of playing almost every week but has impressed when given the opportunity.
Ryan Jack’s suspension for a red card against Hamilton could see Holt make his first league start of the campaign as the Gers try to close the six-point gap to leaders Aberdeen and Celtic.
The Gers return to action after the international break when they travel to Perth to take on St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on October 13th.
