Jason Holt has today been linked with a surprise move out of Ibrox to English One side Plymouth Argyle, with the 25-year old midfielder effectively regarded as surplus to Steven Gerrard.
The first training session under the new manager begins in around 72 hours at Auchenhowie, but Holt might not be there if reports of the Pilgrims’ interest in the ex-Hearts man are accurate.
Derek Adams’ side finished in a reasonable seventh last season, and may well see Holt as the kind of gritty midfielder he needs to push for a serious crack at promotion.
For his part, Holt has always held himself well at Ibrox, spoke well and wore the shirt not only with dignity but as captain. He may not be of the level required for Rangers to move forward but his heart is not in question.
The Home Park team would not have to shell too much out to secure Holt, with a modest six-figure sum likely to be enough to release him to England.
If he moves on, he does so with our best wishes.
