Rangers should make a move to sign Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson, according to Alex Rae.
The Gers have seemingly prioritised trimming down their squad this month over recruiting new faces, as per sporting director Ross Wilson, but ex-Ibrox man Rae believes that there could be merits to adding cover in the centre of the park.
And if the Gers do decide to pursue a new signing in that area, the pundit is of the opinion that 20-year-old Ferguson would be the ideal addition.
“I think young Lewis Ferguson up at Aberdeen would be a right good shout.
“When you see his development, he’s obviously had a couple of years up at Aberdeen now and done relatively well.
“I think there’s plenty of growth still in him in terms of his development.”
Would Ferguson be a good signing for Rangers?
You can definitely understand the logic behind wanting the Gers to add more bodies in the centre of the park.
Ryan Jack, Steven Davis, and Glen Kamara have been superb in that area this term, but any injuries in the second half of the season could be problematic, with Scott Arfield arguably the only real cover in the engine room, especially if Greg Docherty and Matt Polster leave this month.
A bit of insurance wouldn’t come in wrong, therefore, and they Gers could do a whole lot worse than Ferguson.
The youngster wins an average of 7.67 defensive duels per game for the Dons, as per Wyscout, and has a pass completion rate just shy of 80%.
Moreover, he has potential to burn, and if the Gers could land him now, they could be getting a fantastic talent for the future too.
