Jason Holt makes admission after Rangers win v Hibernian
Midfielder Jason Holt has admitted that Rangers have found a little bit of luck in recent weeks after grinding out wins over Hibs and Ross County.
The Gers have fallen behind to an early goal in both games before rallying to win 2-1 twice in five days.
The results have helped Graeme Murty’s side record four consecutive wins for the first time since December 2016 and close the gap on league leaders Celtic to five points.
Holt thinks Rangers have had a little bit of luck but insists the results also speak volumes about the “belief” in the Ibrox dressing room.
“We probably had a wee bit of luck on our side,” Holt said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“The second half we were under a bit of pressure but sometimes you need a bit of luck in this game.

“Previously this season we’ve not had that luck but this time we got it.
“That win says a lot about the belief in the squad right now.”
Rangers scored twice in four minutes through Josh Windass and Alfredo Morelos against Neil Lennon’s side to snatch three points at Easter Road on Wednesday night.
The capital side put Rangers under long spells of pressure as they looked to find a way back into the game but were repeatedly denied by man of the match Wes Foderingham.
The Gers face St. Johnstone at Ibrox on Saturday and will be desperate to continue their winning run and put pressure on Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic before the two sides meet on December 30th.
Celtic have a game in hand on the Ibrox side but have been in patchy form domestically recently despite remaining unbeaten.
