JASON HOLT is confident Rangers can return to winning ways when they travel to The Energy Check Stadium at Firhill tomorrow night for their next Premiership test.

The Light Blues suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Hibs at Ibrox on Saturday but Holt believes his side can respond in a positive way by claiming three important league points against Alan Archibald’s men.

Partick Thistle go into the game after a 3-1 away victory over St Johnstone on January 27 and a 1-1 draw with Motherwell at Fir Park at the weekend and Gers’ stand-in skipper is relishing the challenge they will provide on their home pitch.

Speaking at today’s pre-match press conference, he said: “Of course, I think that after any defeat you always look to bounce back in the very next game, so obviously Tuesday is no different.

We know it’s going to be tough game. It’s been tough encounters the last few times we have been there in the cup and in the league so we know what to expect.”

Holt is glad Rangers’ next game is coming up quickly after the frustration of losing at home.

He added: “Of course. Obviously after the game we cover and we analyse the game at the weekend but I think it’s good that we have a game straight away to put things right.

We need to make sure first and foremost that we get back to winning ways and we address the things that went wrong at the weekend and try to start another winning cycle if we can.”

On being the club’s captain in recent games, the industrious midfielder continued: “Obviously I’m clearly happy to get the armband and very proud to lead the boys out.

“For as long as I’m in that position I’ll try and do my best.

“Obviously after any disappointing result you’re itching to get the next game. You want to get back to winning ways so we’ll look to do that on Tuesday.”
