Rangers midfielder Jason Holt has expressed his admiration for English midfielders Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, and wishes to emulate their on-field performances.

The 22-year-old midfielder joined Rangers in the summer and has become a key player in Mark Warburton’s side, scoring four goals in 15 competitive appearances.

The Hearts youth product has chipped in with key goals for his side and scored the opener in Tuesday night’s 4-0 rout of Dumbarton at Ibrox.

Holt admires Liverpool legend Gerrard’s ability to dominate throughout the park, from his defensive contributions to getting into key positions inside the opposition’s box at the right moment to score crucial goals.

Speaking in an interview with Rangers TV, Holt said: “I have always liked Steven Gerrard or Frank Lampard.


“I think because they are complete midfielders.

“Steven Gerrard, because he is all over the park, defensively and getting himself forward in the opposition box."

The 22-year-old is also an admirer of Chelsea legend Lampard and hailed the New York City FC midfielder’s knack for scoring goals.

“Lampard just for the pure fact his knack for goals is incredible, especially from midfield.”

Warburton’s men currently sit at the top of the Scottish Championship, three points ahead of second placed Hibernian and look on course to earn promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.
