Jason Holt has admitted that it’s the Rangers players who must take the blame for the poor run of form that saw Pedro Caixinha sacked just seven months into a three-year contract.
The Ibrox giants have already lost three times at home in the Scottish Premiership and find themselves nine points of leaders Celtic.
The midfielder was a peripheral figure under Pedro Caixinha before returning to a regular midfielder berth under interim boss Graeme Murty.
The Gers have failed to win three games in a row since December 2016 and Holt also believes that is something that Rangers need to fix as soon as possible.
“Of course [the players need to accept responsibility],” Holt said, as quoted by the Evening Times. “At the end of the day we are the people who cross that white line and go onto the park.
“As players, we take responsibility. I have said before, the fact we are even talking about winning two and three games is unacceptable at this club.
“I don’t think it is mental strength, but I think there has been a few games where we haven’t gone in with the lead at half-time and when we have come out for the second half it has been a bit laboured.
“Again, that is not acceptable either.”
Holt is expected to start once alongside Ryan Jack in the heart of Rangers’ midfield on Friday night when the Light Blues travel to Dens Park to take on Dundee in the Scottish Premiership.
The 54-times Scottish champions find themselves sat in fourth in the Scottish Premiership with a double-header against second-placed Aberdeen to come after the Dundee clash.
With league leaders Celtic already nine points clear of the Gers, Murty’s side will be desperate for three points against Dundee to keep touch with their bitter rivals ahead of the next Old Firm clash on December 30th at Celtic Park.
