Alex Rae has doubled down on his claim that Rangers should make a move for Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson.
The pundit made the suggestion on Ladbrokes’ Social Club last week, as per Ibrox News, stating that he believed the youngster could be the ideal man to provide some much needed cover in the centre of the park at Ibrox.
That in turn led to some viewers questioning his judgement, but Rae was quick to stick by his suggestion.
Speaking on the latest edition of the show, the former Ger said: “I like the fact that he’s still young, and there’s a lot to develop.
“You look at some of the guys like Morelos and Barisic, good progression – Kamara’s another.”
Would Ferguson be a good signing for the Gers?
As we said last week when this story first appeared, you can definitely understand the logic behind Rae wanting his former club to add some more bodies in the engine room.
Ryan Jack, Steven Davis, and Glen Kamara have made that area their own this term, but any unexpected absences or injuries in the second half of the season could throw a real spanner in the works for Steven Gerrard, especially if Greg Docherty and Matt Polster do end up heading through the exit door this month.
A bit of cover would therefore be appreciated and Ferguson is far from the worse option they could pursue.
The Aberdeen man 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, as Rae suggests, he does have an awful lot of potential to fulfil, and if the Gers could land him now, he could be a fine addition for years to come.
