Jason Holt says he doesn’t have any regrets over his St Johnstone move, saying that he thinks his adopted club can turn their fortunes around.
Holt joined St Johnstone from Rangers on a season-long loan deal in the summer. It hasn’t been smooth sailing since then though.
Tommy Wright’s men are bottom of the table and winless after nine games ahead of this weekend’s clash with Hamitlon.
The midfielder believes that they can turn the tide that’s against them. He told the Daily Record (page 61, 24/10/19): “When we cross the white line it’s us as players who need to produce. We need to take responsibility. The gaffer here has had a great record over a number of seasons.
“There’s no doubting his managerial quality. We all need to stick together – players and staff – and stay focused on our aim of moving up the table.
“Knowing the manager’s track record gives us confidence we can do that.”
Holt will earn minutes in Perth
On a personal note, the switch hasn’t been too bad for Holt. He has played three times so far in St Johnstone with more appearances surely on the way.
Whilst he’s only played 255 Premiership minutes this term, that’s way more than he would’ve played at Ibrox this season. Holt’s out of favour there, and with his contract expiring soon, his Rangers spell will soon come to an end.
Right now though he’ll be focused on St Johnstone. The club have four home games in quick succession now against Hamilton, Hearts, Hibs and Aberdeen. Points have to be taken from these games or the Saints will be in real trouble.
Their loan midfielder will look to make a difference as they strive for a vital three points over the next few weeks.
