Jason Holt insists Scotland will improve on their poor form
The Light Blues flopped for a third time this season against Ross County – drawing 1-1 against the Staggies at Ibrox after two previous league draws against the Dingwall outfit.
Hot on the heels of a 4-1 hammering at Tynecastle, Rangers have now lost second spot in the Premiership to Aberdeen.
And midfielder Holt – part of a side booed off at half-time and full-time against County – admits the players have to step up to the plate.
He said: “The past two results have been poor, but that’s down to the players and we have a challenge on our hands now to go and change that.
Mark Warburton has received heavy criticism for Rangers' recent results
“We are always confident as a group. It’s down to us. But we will rise to the challenge and change it. We’ll come out stronger.”
Manager Mark Warburton has copped flak in the wake of the two dismal shows against Hearts and County.
Warburton dropped Andy Halliday and Martyn Waghorn to the bench after Tynecastle – and bombed Rob Kiernan altogether for the County draw.
Yet for the second game in a row he blamed schoolboy defending for his team’s failure to win.

Holt replaced Halliday in midfield, but despite his usual energy was unable to provide the winning spark. “It was massively frustrating and disappointing,” added Holt.
“With the size of the club, the expectation is there and the players need to rise to that.
“We need to go and show on the pitch what we are capable of. We’ve said before we win together and lose together.
“We go through the good times and the bad times together – there is no pointing fingers at anyone.”
