Holt: I'm here to push this club forward

Midfielder reacts after joining on season-long loan

18 June 2018

Jason Holt has spoken for the first time after agreeing a loan deal to join Fleetwood Town from Rangers.

Having made 33 appearances last season for The Gers, the 25-year-old has plenty of experience in promotion pushes; after titles North of the border, and believes he can help push the club forward onto bigger and better things. 

The Scottish midfielder took part in his first training session at Poolfoot Farm on Monday morning, and spoke to the club about what he can bring to this 'exciting' team under new head coach Joey Barton.

"I believe I am the kind of player who will bring a lot of energy to the team," said Holt.

"I am someone who gets themselves around the park, and hopefully I can help the team as much as I can and maybe chip in with goals and assists.

"Everyone has been great. I've been in this situation before going to a new club but there are some others in the same situation, and they've just been very welcoming and it's also nice to get that first session out of the way.

"Coming down here and speaking to people at the football club just shows how ambitious they are and hopefully after a good pre-season, and a good start to the season, we can be up there.

"I'm here to help the club as much as I can and have a positive season and help push this football club forward."

Holt has also played with Town's new boss Joey Barton and mentioned the impact he had on him signing for the Fylde Coast team.

"I played with manager whilst he was at Rangers and he got in touch with me," added Holt.

"He has shown real desire to get me here which helps me make my mind up.

"The manager asked what my thoughts were on joining up with him and here we are today.

"I am very happy to be here and it's the first day with everyone, and it has been nice to meet all of the staff and all the boys."​
