JASON Holt believes Rangers would have blown Hamilton away if they’d only taken their chances on Friday evening.
The midfielder admitted the Gers made it nervy for themselves after conceding with 13 minutes left to play and says they would have been out of sight had they netted the amount of opportunities they racked up.
Holt delivered another impressive display in the centre of the park as the Light Blues recorded their first third consecutive win of the campaign.
The 23-year-old said: “First and foremost we were really happy with the three points, the performance was good and then they scored and it was a bit edgy after that but I thought in the main we controlled the game.
“I thought the whole team did really well; the only disappointing thing was we never took our chances.
“We had a lot of chances and we should have put them away to make the game more comfortable.
“I think we controlled the game but after they scored it became a bit edgy whereas if we had taken our chances then the game would have been out of sight.
“There have been questions asked and that [winning three in a row] has come up a lot of the time about not winning these games so we knew it was important to come down here and win.
“We knew it was another big game for us off the back of Aberdeen and Hearts so we are really happy to get the three points.”
Holt has been a solid fixture in the Gers midfield of late, along with Andy Halliday but injury to Josh Windass has meant Matt Crooks, Kenny Miller and more recently James Tavernier have all slotted into the third spot.
Those changes haven’t affected Holt though as he says he doesn’t mind who he plays with going into a festive period which ends with the return of the Old Firm to Ibrox.
He continued: “Tav has come into the midfield and done really well, before that Kenny was in and did really well too against Aberdeen.
“I am happy to play with whoever and I think the whole team’s performance has been good in general over the past couple of weeks.
“The Christmas period is always huge because the games come thick and fast so if you can get a wee run going then it is great going into the break.”
