JASON HOLT hopes midfielder Jamie Barjonas can realise his potential at Rangers after he committed his future to the Light Blues.

The 18-year-old has signed a new deal that will keep him at Ibrox until the summer of 2020.

Barjonas made four appearances last term as he turned out against Partick Thistle, Hearts, Aberdeen and St Johnstone.

He came off the bench in Pedro Caixinha’s final game in charge against Kilmarnock and was then given another chance to impress by interim boss Graeme Murty in the win over Hearts.

And Holt reckons his central peer has a bright future ahead of him as he looks to catch the eye in Light Blue.

“I’ve been really impressed and I’m delighted for him extending his contract,” he told RangersTV. “Every time he has trained with the first team you have been able to see his qualities.

“With him being in the same position as myself, any tips or bits of advice I can give to him, I will always do that and it’s the same with guys like Ryan Jack and Graeme Dorrans too. I’m sure on the other hand too Jamie will always be looking to learn.

“It’s always great when you see young players given that chance and then them going and taking that opportunity.

“Everyone needs to start somewhere and get that opportunity, so the more opportunities we can give to the younger lads, the more it will stand us in good stead for the future.”
