Jason Holt is facing uncertainty as his Rangers and St Johnstone deals continue to run down amid the current suspension of fixtures due to the global pandemic.

The 27-year-old midfielder was a key part of the Gers side who gained promotion from the Championship at the end of the 2015/16 season, but hasn’t been seen in Light Blue since Steven Gerrard’s arrival at the club.

He spent last season on loan with EFL League One club Fleetwood Town, but a successful stint there was ended prematurely by injury.

Clearly still surplus to requirements at Ibrox, he was allowed to leave on loan again in September 2019 [Rangers.co.uk], this time remaining in Scotland and joining St Johnstone.

It hasn’t been the most spectacular of stints, with the absence of any goals and assists an indicator that Holt is taking up a deeper-lying role than he did during his early days with the Gers.


He’s racked up 17 league appearances, though, with his tally of 1253 minutes a lot more than he’d have been afforded had he stuck around with the Gers.

Yet, with question marks surrounding whether or not the season will be able to restart, there’s now some individual uncertainty for Holt.

His loan spell in Perth only runs until late May or early June, which will coincide with the expiration of his Rangers contract.

It’s obvious that he won’t be getting an extension at Ibrox, but there’s also no apparent obligation to buy on St Johnstone’s part.

Therefore, there’s a chance that Holt has already played his last game for both clubs and could well become a free agent in a few months time.
