Jason Holt: This Rangers senior man has been brilliant since coming in

By Harvey Byrne

Rangers midfielder Jason Holt believes current caretaker boss Graeme Murty has been “brilliant” since taking over the managerial reigns of the club.

The 42-year-old stepped up from the youth team in February following the departure of Mark Warburton.

He has led the Ibrox giants in five matches in all competitions, resulting in three wins and two defeats.

The inexperienced boss is now set to lead Rangers against fierce rivals Celtic on Sunday in what could be his last match and midfielder Holt was full of praise for Murty in the build-up to the game.

“Like I said, since he’s came in, he’s been brilliant,” started Holt speaking in a press conference, as shown by the official Rangers YouTube account.

“He’s been excellent. So if it is his last game then it will be great to send him off in good fashion.”

Recent results have seen Rangers drop down to third place in the Premiership table with a massive 33 point gap currently between themselves and Celtic.

However, they will also be looking to push on from two victories in their last two outings with the thought of ending the Hoops’ unbeaten run lodged firmly in their mind.

Brendan Rodgers’ team are currently 27 matches unbeaten in Scotland’s top flight and those associated with Rangers will be delighted if they bring that run to a crushing end.

Holt, who has started just two of his side’s last six league games will also be hoping to play a big part in Sunday’s match.
