In our Loan Watch feature series, the Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at how a selection of players from a particular club are faring whilst they are away from their parent side, and provide a brief update regarding their form.
This week, we look at two men loaned out by Rangers to other Scottish clubs as well as one plying his trade on the other side of the Atlantic.
Midfielder Jason Holt made his fifth Premiership start of the season for St Johnstone at Motherwell on Saturday, the third consecutive league game in which he has featured. [via TransferMarkt]
Although the 26-year-old got a full league game for the first time since late September, the Saints were thumped 4-0 at Fir Park to remain rooted to the foot of the Premiership table.
On a tough day for St Johnstone, Holt appeared to be one of their few positives, with the loanee getting the highest rating of his team from Andy Devlin of The Scottish Sun.
Teenage winger Josh McPake watched on from the substitutes’ bench as his Dundee side fell to a third consecutive Championship defeat on Saturday.
The 18-year-old was an unused substitute as James McPake’s (no relation) team lost 1-2 at home to Queen of the South, the second successive game in which he didn’t make it off the bench. [via TransferMarkt]
McPake hasn’t started for Dundee since late September, with his last appearance coming as a substitute in the derby defeat to Dundee United nearly a month ago. Four of his seven league outings this season have been from the bench. [via TransferMarkt]
Mexican striker Eduardo Herrera came off the bench in the dying minutes of Necaxa’s 3-2 win over Queretaro in the second leg of their Liga MX play-off quarter-final.
Holt appeared to be the best of a rather poor St Johnstone lot on Saturday and hopefully will start more regularly for the struggling Saints.
McPake has youth on his side but seems to have fallen out of contention for Dundee in recent weeks, a trend he could do with reversing soon.
Herrera could end up winning silverware with Necaxa in the coming weeks, although with his season characterised by substitute appearances, it’s hard to see him getting into Rangers’ line-up with regularity.
Rangers fans, what do you make of the performances of the on-loan trio? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
