Fans of the Ibrox club aren't pleased with one Glasgow Rangers player.

Kenny Miller of Rangers talks with Jason Holt during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Celtic at Ibrox Stadium on April 29, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

It seems like Jason Holt has caught a bit of flak from Rangers fans over recent comments.

Speaking to a press conference via Rangers TV on Thursday, the 24-year-old claimed that he and his team-mates are well capable of handling pressure.

The Gers are fourth in the Scottish Premiership after last Saturday's shock 2-0 defeat by Hamilton at Ibrox, a result which has caused a gloomy mood among the fanbase to some extent.

Things had been somewhat cheery prior to that as caretaker manager Graeme Murty - deputising for axed Pedro Caixinha who still hasn't been replaced - managed two wins early on in his temporary stint.

But the pressure is back on the Ibrox side ahead of tonight's trip to Dundee and some of the club's fans would rather Holt and his team-mates focus on actions and not words.

Holt has emerged as a prominent player for Rangers under Murty, starting the last three games and he will be expected to begin in midfield again at Dundee this evening.

He scored in the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock which turned out to be Caixinha's last game in charge.
