Rangers senior midfielder turns out for youths

Out-of-favour midfielder Jason Holt has followed fellow fringe man Jordan Rossiter’s lead by turning out for Rangers’ youth ranks.

In an attempt to get in critical minutes, the former Hearts midfielder started for Graeme Murty’s Colts against Dumbarton this week in a 2-1 loss at the catchily-named Your Radio 103FM Stadium, despite a positive overall display.

Ex-Liverpool anchor Rossiter has also been taking valuable game time with the youths in order to keep himself match fresh, and Holt, who mostly finds himself on the bench nowadays, took the chance to get himself sharper, although Rossiter did not feature in the Irn Bru Cup loss.

With manager Pedro Caixinha preferring a midfield of Graham Dorrans, Ryan Jack, Daniel Candeias and Josh Windass for now it does seem others will have to wait on their chance before getting in on the act – but messyrs Holt and Rossiter are certainly doing the right and professional thing keeping themselves as fit as possible for a possible call up.

Incidentally said fixture featured Myles Beerman who Ibrox Noise confirmed weeks ago as being removed from the senior squad and being restored to the youth set up, and Jamie Barjonas, who fans expect great things from this season.

The midfielder impressed last season and supporters will be eager to see him given his chance again.
