JASON HOLT reckons Rangers’ hard work has at last paid off after they completed their return to the Scottish Premiership last night.

A 1-0 win over Dumbarton was enough to seal their ascent to Scotland’s top flight after a four year absence, and Holt revealed he knew from early-on in his spell at the club that they had all the attributes to rise back to the top.

Speaking to RangersTV.tv, Holt said: “It’s great, and you could see by the reaction of everyone what it means to get the club back to where it belongs.

“We have worked really hard since day one at the start of pre-season, and right through the season, and this is us getting our rewards.

“It was a feeling of sheer delight walking around and seeing what it meant to the fans. They have been great since I came in, and the noise last night and throughout the season was just great.

“When I first came in I knew the aim and that was to get us back to where we belong. I knew with the changing room we have here we definitely had the qualities to get us back up.

“Even before last night, it was an easy decision to come to Rangers, but you saw what it meant to the fans and the club as a whole, so I’m just really delighted.”

Last night’s game maybe didn’t quite pan out as many had hoped or expected, but Holt refuted any suggestion of Rangers being nervous.

He continued: “There was expectations and we knew we had the chance to go and do it. We knew though if we just stuck to our task we would get the breakthrough eventually.

“It is difficult, but we knew if we just kept moving the ball, then they would tire, and that’s where we know we have to go and create opportunities to score goals.”

Holt also looked forward to next season, saying: “We will go up there, and while there will be tougher games, we won’t be changing the way we play, and even now, we won’t be resting on our laurels – we want to finish the season strongly and we still have some big games coming up.”
