Rangers star Jason Holt explains why Mark Warburton’s passing style suits Gers

Rangers have excelled under Mark Warburton this season.

Speaking to the Scotsman, Jason Holt has explained why Mark Warburton’s passing style is perfectly suited to the Rangers squad, having excelled so far this season.

The midfielder said: “The passing style is great for every player in the team because you are always getting lots of touches of the ball. It goes through the midfield a lot and it’s great to be involved so much.”

Warburton arrived at the beginning of the summer, and took no time in establishing his brand of football at Ibrox.

Last season, there was no clear identity with how Rangers were meant to be playing - either under Ally McCoist or Stuart McCall - and Warburton wanted to create a team philosophy when he was appointed manager.

So far he has achieved that aim, with his side playing attacking, high-energy football, whist looking to keep the ball on the ground in a technical style.

Holt, who features in midfield, believes this system suits the current Rangers squad perfectly, as it means the players spend so much time on the ball.

Rather than punting it long and bypassing the entire central third, the Gers are allowed to dominate and control games by giving every player possession of the ball.

So far, this brand of football has worked wonders, as Rangers have swept aside all opponents with 10 wins from 10 games.

Whether opposing teams start to adapt to the game plan, and find a way to overcome Warburton’s system, remains to be see, but right now, Rangers look unstoppable on their march back to the top flight.
