Jason Holt has signed a three year deal with Rangers after impressing on trial following his departure from Hearts at the end of last season.
Holt, who cost Rangers £65,000 in a development fee, told the Rangers website: “I think the style of play that is coming in is really exciting and if you asked anyone they would like to be a part of this. Throughout people’s careers you come and go so I am just delighted to get this done and finally be here.
“It did hurt a wee bit leaving Tynecastle, I am a Hearts fan but it is part of football and now I am a Rangers player and my full focus is on this club. When the situation arose that I had an opportunity to come to Rangers I just jumped at it.
“I’ve been really impressed from the moment I came in the door, I spoke to a few of the boys and they were saying the same and as soon as I got a taste of it myself I just thought the same.
“I wanted to get something done straight away and thankfully it has transpired that way and the club is definitely going in the right direction.”
Holt played in Tuesday night;s 1-0 pre-season defeat to Burnley at Ibrox and could be set for a starting place against Hibernian in the Petrofac Training Cup first round at Easter Road on Saturday.
The 22-year-old is Rangers manager Mark Warburton’s seventh signing of the summer transfer window.
