Former Rangers star trains with Premiership side after Gers exit

Former Rangers star Jason Holt has been training with Livingston after his Ibrox exit at the end of May – but Livi boss Gary Holt admits he’s unsure if there will be a deal on the table for the ex-Ger.

The diminutive midfielder has spent the last two seasons out on loan with Fleetwood Town and St. Johnstone, respectively, before being released by Rangers at the end of last season.

Despite training with the Premiership side, their boss insists there’s been no talks over a contract yet and admits he isn’t sure of there is any chance of one being offered.

“We gave Jason an opportunity to come in and train. He asked us could he come in and we have given him the chance to keep himself ticking over and to be part of something instead of training by himself,” Holt told the Daily Record.

“I don’t know if there is a chance for a deal, we haven’t spoken about it, we have just given him the opportunity to come in and train and be part of the group.

“There is nothing worse than being on your own, you want to be playing with the ball in a group. So that’s the opportunity we have given him. We will have to see what’s what but we know where he is and he knows where we are, so we will wait and see.”

There will be at least one familiar face at the Tony Macaroni Arena for Holt in the shape of on-loan Rangers keeper Robby McCrorie.

The pair will know each other well from their time at Ibrox and it will be interesting to see whether Holt can win a contract in West Lothian.
