Jason Holt says that he’s been frustrated by the ‘stop-start’ nature of his St Johnstone loan spell thus far.

Now he’s in Perth and he hasn’t really had a chance to fully motor for Tommy Wright’s side. He hopes that will change sometime soon.

“It has been frustrating because it has been a bit stop-start for me, Holt told the Daily Record (page 58, 30/11/19).

“But now I’m looking to stay in the team and keep the rhythm going.”

Holt struggling to find consistency

Whilst he has played much more than he would’ve done at Ibrox this term, Holt has still struggled for regular minutes. He’s featured six times this season.

Red tape and injury has halted his progress but things are starting to look up for the Rangers loanee. After an appearance against Motherwell, he’s now played three games in a row for the Saints.

The league table doesn’t make for great reading for the McDiarmid Park side though. After a heavy 4-0 defeat to Motherwell, they still find themselves bottom, although only on goal difference.

Holt will be pining for consistency as Wright’s men look to drag themselves out of a relegation scrap.
