Jason Holt admits Rangers squad aren't thinking about extending winning run

Rangers player Jason Holt has explained that the squad aren't transfixed on winning a high ratio of games.

Rangers star Jason Holt has stressed to the Glasgow Evening Times that the squad don’t think about how they’ll keep their good form going.

Holt has been a key feature in a Mark Warburton side which has started the season with a real bang, as the Gers look to get promoted into the Scottish Premiership where they can reignite some old rivalries.

While aware of the importance of momentum, Holt has explained that he feels it’s important that the team don’t become too transfixed on going on as long a winning run as possible.

“If we can keep the momentum going, the games are coming thick and fast. We can only take it one game at a time,” he told the Glasgow Evening Times.

“We don't think about how we can keep it going. We have to get the message across that we're not looking too far ahead and it really is just one game at a time. Our objective going into every game is three points.”

A sensible approach

The approach of taking one game at a time and focusing on three points from one game to the next likely comes from the manager.

Warburton won’t want his team to become complacent in any form, which is possible for a team on a long winning run, looking ahead at records and possible achievements.

It’s very important to the football club that they secure their place in the top flight of the Scottish game as quickly as possible.

It’s easy to see why Rangers could become complacent but given the stakes, but Warburton would be foolish to allow that to happen to his squad, and you get the feeling that there is little chance of that happening.
