St Johnstone man Jason Holt says that their was only going to be one answer when it came to the possibility of swapping Rangers for St Johnstone.

Still contracted to the Ibrox club, Holt has featured in three matches since his loan move to St Johnstone. He hasn’t featured though since a 2-0 defeat to St Mirren.

Holt is happy with his decision to swap Rangers for Perth.

He told the Evening Telegraph (page , 04/11/19): “It was an easy decision to sign for Saints for the season. Manager Tommy Wright was very keen to get me in and I was happy to sign.


“It’s true we made a slow start but we have our first two league successes now and aim to build on these achievements.

“We have some good young lads in the squad and they are being helped by the more experienced players. As a more experienced player, I can give the younger lads some advice.”

Holt had to swap Rangers for St Johnstone

We may be in November and Holt may only have featured on three occasions this term, but it’s still triple the amount of games he would’ve got at Ibrox.

His Rangers career is all but over, with his contract set to expire next summer. With the strength in Steven Gerrard’s midfield, it was going to be borderline impossible to win a place in their engine room.

Instead he is in Perth and seems quite content with that. As time goes on he will get regular minutes with Wright’s side and will continue to prove he can be a handy permanent player.

Whether that’ll be at St Johnstone or not next summer is unknown, but Holt seems to be enjoying his loan stint thus far.
