Rangers midfielder Jason Holt has struggled for regular game-time this season but appeared to have forced his way back into the plans at Ibrox when he started getting a run of games under Graeme Murty.

The former Hearts ace started to impress and was even handed the captain’s armband in the absence of Lee Wallace before a suspension ruled him out of the recent clash with Hamilton.

After sitting out the New Douglas Park fixture, most expected Holt would come straight back into the side but instead, the midfielder has barely been seen in the side with only two cameos from the bench under his belt since.

With the likes of Greg Docherty struggling for form, Holt is someone who could come into the side and provide some energy to the Gers play and get them moving a bit sharper than their typical languid pace.

The middle of the pitch is an area that Murty isn’t short of options with Docherty, Holt, Ross McCrorie, Sean Goss, Graham Dorrans, Andy Halliday and Jordan Rossiter all competing for a place in the first-team.

With only five league games left this season, Murty may turn to the 25-year-old to help his side get over the finishing line in the race for second-place in the Scottish Premiership.
