‘I ANTICIPATED CONTACT,’ ADMITS BOOKED IBROX STAR

0
RANGERS midfielder Jason Holt has admitted he “anticipated contact” when he went down inside the penalty box during the Ibrox side’s 1-1 draw with Ross County in Dingwall on Sunday.
The former Hearts player was booked for diving by referee Andrew Dallas in the 67th minute after he went over the outstretched leg of defender Marcus Fraser.
There appeared to be contact and Holt was non-committal when asked whether he felt he should have had a penalty.

He said: “I’m not sure. I anticipated the contact, whether it came or not I can’t really remember, but I just got on with the game.

“We are really disappointed with how we went from really good last week to not so good this week.”

Clint Hill headed the Ibrox side into the lead in the eighth minute and Holt added: “Getting the goal so early was great and we had chances after that to go and get ourselves a cushion in the game, but we obviously conceded, which was disappointing.

“Even after that we had chances in the second-half which we are disappointed we didn’t take.”
Rangers blew the opportunity to go second in the Premiership and are 11 points behind runaway leaders Celtic and one adrift of Aberdeen.
