St Johnstone have confirmed the loan signing of Rangers midfielder Jason Holt on a season-long loan deal.

Holt has been at Rangers since 2015, but spent last season out on loan at Fleetwood Town. He joins Tommy Wright’s men for this campaign, as the final year of his Rangers deal runs down (Transfermarkt).

It’s a good move by the Saints and one that should be of benefit too.

Holt will run through brick walls for St Johnstone

One thing that can never be questioned is Holt’s hard work and dedication. Whilst he hasn’t played much for Rangers over the past couple of seasons, some fans have never doubted his loyalty.

Fans of St Johnstone can expect much of the same from Holt. He is a tenacious midfielder who’ll run through brick walls for his teammates and his club.

Holt will add much needed drive and aggression to the Saints midfield. Strong in the tackle, the 26-year-old doesn’t mind putting in the hard yards in midfield.

These qualities have been lacking in Wright’s side so far this term. They sit joint-bottom of the Premiership, with experienced duo Liam Craig and Murray Davidson not quite getting into their stride as of yet.

Rangers battler Holt will add some drive to their engine room. If he can hit his Rangers form of 2015/16 at McDiarmid Park, he’ll add end product too. Holt scored eight goals and notched 12 assists that campaign for the Ibrox side.

This is a good move from St Johnstone and Holt will be looking to play as much football as he can this term.
