JASON HOLT was delighted that Martyn Waghorn scored the winning goal for the Gers and thinks it shows again the fight the Light Blues have.
Waghorn had a rollercoaster last five minutes of the match after he missed a penalty, his first in the Light Blue shirt, then just moments later scored the winner with the first headed goal of the Mark Warburton era at the Gers.
Holt was delighted for Waghorn as he gave Rangers the win. He said: “He might have missed the penalty, but you can’t fault Waggy because his record before that has been brilliant.
“Like we always say, we will always keep going right until the final whistle and we’ve proved that again today by getting the late goal again.”
As is becoming a habit at the end of Gers games, the players took time once the final whistle had blown to applaud all the fans for their excellent support.
Holt feels that the connection that the players and the fans now have was evident in the way that everyone celebrated today’s late winner.
He said: “I think you could see that from the way the players and the fans reacted at the end of the game that we are really up for it.
“It was great to get the win at the end and brilliant to see that from the look on everyone’s face.”
Holt and his Gers teammates will now turn their attentions towards Tuesday night’s Petrofac Training Cup tie against Livingston with a tie against St Mirren in the next round awaiting the victor.
He continued: “We take every league game or cup that we play in very seriously. It’s another game that we are looking to win and we’ll prepare for it in the exact same way.”
