Ex-Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has revealed that his former club have yet to make contact about signing his nephew, Lewis Ferguson, from Aberdeen.
The player’s uncle said his inside source is his son, who talks regularly with the Scotland Under international, and he wants the Light Blues to make their move sooner rather than later:
“Every day my son speaks to Lewis on WhatsApp and he says there has been no contact from Rangers. But I think he would be a very good signing for them. He has still got a bit to go in terms of reaching the top level, but he has all the attributes.”
“Aberdeen have done the right thing. Lewis had a great first season last year, and they signed him up on a four-year deal to get top money for him. Whoever buys Lewis now will have to pay top dollar.”
It was reported earlier this week that English Championship side Brentford could pip Rangers to Ferguson’s signature. The Bees have regularly scouted the 20-year-old this season and are reportedly now prepared to step up their interest.
It is not too late for the Gers to enter the race for the midfielder but there could be a major obstacle which could stop a transfer from happening. The Dons are said to be very reluctant to sell to a divisional rival.
On top of the fact that Rangers may have to commit a significant sum in order to sign Ianis Hagi on a permanent basis, it isn’t a surprise that the Bears haven’t made their move.
