League One club Fleetwood Town have signed midfielder Jason Holt from Rangers on a season-long loan.

The 25-year-old scored twice in 33 appearances for the Scottish Premiership side last season.

Head coach Joey Barton, who played alongside Holt at Rangers, said it was a "huge signing".

"I saw his qualities on a daily basis, and as soon as I found out he was available we tried everything to make sure we got him here," Barton said.

Holt, who captained Rangers on occasion last term, has played over 100 games for the Ibrox side since joining from Hearts three years ago.

In January 2016 he signed a contract until the summer of 2020.
