Jason Holt is now loving life in happy Rangers camp

By Andy Newport

Rangers midfielder Jason Holt believes there are several comparisons between this season's Ladbrokes Championship leaders and last year's title winners.

But Holt is surely enjoying himself more this campaign having already started more league games for Mark Warburton's side than he did with Hearts last term.

Holt has already matched the two goals he netted for last season's runaway Championship winners, although he hit five more on loan at Sheffield United in the second half of the season.

The 22-year-old has started all six league games ahead of Rangers' trip to Dumbarton today.

Speaking of his new manager, Holt said: "It's just really positive, he lets you express yourself. It would be the same for every player. Playing in this team is really enjoyable - loads of touches of the ball, the passing, the chance to go forward and maybe grab a few goals. All the boys have thoroughly enjoyed it so far."

Rangers have won all 10 competitive games so far and Holt has recognised a number of similarities between his current team and last season's runway leaders.

Holt said: "There are comparisons. The main thing is the togetherness in the dressing room. It's a real tight unit, as it was last season at Hearts, and the boys get on well. There is a great atmosphere around the training field and that really helps."
