Warburton predicts big future for Jason Holt after exceptional Ibrox performance

Mark Warburton has heaped praise on Rangers midfielder Jason Holt.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Scottish Sun that midfielder Jason Holt is only going to get better after another superb performance.

The Gers went into their game with Hibernian on Monday afternoon with plenty of doubters, having taken just eight points from the previous six games.

However, Rangers showed why they are Scottish Championship league leaders, hammering Hibernian 4-2 in an enthralling encounter at Ibrox.

Jason Cummings put Hibs in front early on, but Rangers midfielder Jason Holt struck twice in ten minutes to put Rangers 2-1 ahead before half time.

Nicky Clark then made it 3-1 in the second half, and after Dominique Malonga had pulled another goal back for Hibernian, Martyn Waghorn wrapped up the win for Rangers with a late fourth.

There was no doubting who the star of the show was though, as midfielder Holt once again stole the headlines with a superb display and two goals.

The summer signing from Hearts has been one of Rangers' most consistent performers this season, and with nine goals to his name from midfield, the 22-year-old is certainly one of Warburton's best signings since becoming Gers manager.

Now, Warburton has spoken to The Scottish Sun about Holt, and raved about his impact, before even predicting further improvement from the playmaker in years to come.

"I’m delighted for Jason Holt, he’s getting better and better – the two goals were fantastic," said Warburton. "But beyond that his movement, his commitment and work ethic is fantastic and at 22-years-old, he’s only going to get better," he added.
