RANGERS midfielder Jason Holt has called upon his team-mates to maintain the standard displayed in the 3-0 win over Kilmarnock at Ibrox at the weekend.
Mark Warburton’s side have been criticised following a slow start to the campaign that has seen them walloped 5-1 by Celtic in the Premiership as well as being knocked out of the Betfred League Cup by Brendan Rodgers’ side just over a week ago.
They went into the match against Killie on the back of a 1-1 draw with St Johnstone in Govan where they were booed off the field.
However, goals from Lee Wallace, Andy Halliday and Joe Garner secured the points against Lee Clark’s men to move the Ibrox men into second place and Holt insists they cannot afford to slip below those levels when they travel to Ross County at the weekend.
The former Hearts star said: “It was probably our best performance of the season in terms of our passing and movement. The tempo of our play was pleasing.
“Midweek against St Johnstone was a big disappointment, so it was important we bounced back. We always try and start on the front foot and play at a high tempo. We did that on Saturday. You could see from the start we wanted to create chances and score. That set the tone.
“We did that and it’s nice to be up into second. That said, we are not settling for that and we need to kick on again. From that point of view the game against Ross County next Sunday is massive for us.
“We’ve set the standards and we can’t let that drop. So, we need to make sure we keep to that level in Dingwall.”
