Jamie Barjonas of Rangers makes a sliding tackle

By John Reid

Rangers midfielder Jason Holt is happy that team-mate and fellow midfielder Jamie Barjonas signed a new deal with the Ibrox club this week.

The 18-year-old has been training with Rangers’ first team and Holt has been impressed with what he has seen so far.

Speaking to Rangers official website, he said “I’ve been really impressed and I’m delighted for him extending his contract.

“Every time he has trained with the first team you have been able to see his qualities.

“Jamie will always be looking to learn. It’s always great when you see young players given that chance and then them going and taking that opportunity.”

Barjonas has been at Rangers since he was nine years old, and made his debut for the ‘Gers last season in a substitute appearance in a 2-1 win over Partick Thistle at Firhill.

He played for Rangers four times last season, and made his full match debut against St Johnstone in the last Scottish Premiership game of the season.

Rangers, still under the stewardship of caretaker manager Graeme Murty, have won their last two league games in a row and will be aiming to make it three in a row for the first time in over a year when they take on Hamilton at Ibrox in the first game after the international break.
