JASON HOLT reckons he should have levelled the game for Rangers in injury time tonight as his side went down 3-2 to Hibernian.
After Barrie McKay had scored a screamer to bring the Light Blues back into the game, Holt received a superb James Tavernier ball on the six-yard line, but his shot on the turn trickled into the arms of the grateful Mark Oxley in the Hibernian goal.
Holt had earlier brought his side into the game, scoring to make it 2-1 after being 2-1 down and explained: “I just managed to touch it and shoot, but big Darren McGregor managed to get a touch on it which took the sting out of it, but it’s probably one I should have scored.”
“Any game you lose is really disappointing, and if you lose goals like that it is hard to go and win a game. But we got goals of our own, and dominated possession without really creating too many chances.
“We were 2-0 down at the time and it’s always a dodgy scoreline, so we know getting the next goal is important and we managed to get that. Unfortunately, we couldn’t go on to get another sooner.
“We look forward to the Alloa game on Saturday now and hopefully putting on a good performance for our fans.”
Rangers came into the game off the back of an epic 120-minute Scottish Cup semi-final with Celtic 72 hours earlier, but he denied his side were tired, saying: “I think we saw in the last stages of the game that everyone was fine, and we were still making the runs we were making in the early part of the game.
The two sides meet again on May 21 in the Scottish Cup final, and with three league games to go before that clash, Holt insists getting back to winning ways is crucial.
He added: “It’s vitally important we keep the momentum going, as taking our foot off the gas wouldn’t be us at all. We will keep working ever so hard just as we have throughout the season.”
