Rangers Super Fans want Lewis Ferguson from Aberdeen
This is part of a regular series from our panel of Rangers Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Ibrox. You can join in the discussion on our Rangers Insider Facebook page.
Rangers should make a move to sign midfielder Lewis Ferguson from Aberdeen in the summer, according to our panel of Super Fans.
Ferguson, 21, has handed in a transfer request to quit Pittodrie after a Premier League had a bid rejected for him by the Dons [Aberdeen official website].
The Scotland Under-21 international, who’s the son of ex-Ger Derek Ferguson and nephew of Barry Ferguson, has been one of Aberdeen’s stand-out players and has been linked with a move to Ibrox in the past.
The Scottish Sun has this week reported that Rangers could rival Watford in the bid to sign Aberdeen’s Ferguson and our panel of Super Fans agree that’s something that should happen.
However, one fan has warned the Light Blues that it could become a John McGinn-type situation if they don’t move quickly enough.
Here is what they said:
Rangers definitely need to strengthen their midfield options in the summer transfer window.
Bongani Zungu doesn’t look as though he’s going to win a permanent contract at Ibrox and could be returned to Amiens at the end of his loan while Steven Davis isn’t getting any younger and Ryan Jack has been once again plagued by injury issues.
Ferguson is a central midfielder who knows the Premiership, is a future Scotland international and is only going to improve when he has someone like Steven Gerrard coaching him.
