JASON HOLT couldn’t hide his unhappiness as, despite what he believed was a largely good showing from Rangers, they were held to a 1-1 draw by Ross County yesterday.
After falling behind to and Alex Schalk goal in the first half, Gers levelled through Lee Wallace but missed a number of other chances to take what they would feel would have been a deserved three points.
Speaking at full-time to RangersTV.tv, Holt explained: “It’s just a massive disappointment. Although we thought, especially in the second half, that we had played well and created chances, we have come in again having dropped points, and that’s the big disappointment.
“Ultimately, it comes down to us taking our chances, and when they come along we need to be clinical and we need to get in there and start scoring them.
“Obviously, going 1-0 down makes it difficult, but we just had to keep on doing what we were doing, and we knew that we would get chances. We got the goal through Lee [Wallace] and the second goal, we just couldn’t get there.”
Holt featured in a midfield three alongside Jon Toral and Emerson Hyndman from the start for the first time, and on that, he explained: “You have seen in the games they have played that they are really good players, and what they can bring to the team is great. Whatever three are selected though they will go and do a job.”
Gers now move on to host Morton in the Scottish Cup on Sunday, and Holt is well aware that the Light Blues face a tough test against Jim Duffy’s high-flying and well-organised Ton side.
He added: “I think it’s just important to have another game straight away, and for us to be able to try and put it right. It’s obviously a different competition and another one that we want to do well in, but we know Morton are going to prove really tough opponents. They have been doing really well in the league, so we know what is expected.”
