A player linked with Steven Gerrard’s Rangers during the January transfer window has been described as the best player in his team by Scottish Sun pundit Mark Wilson.
Rangers were said to be interested in Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson earlier this year, the Scottish Sun claiming Ibrox sporting director Ross Wilson had identified the 20-year-old as a potential successor to Glen Kamara.
Ferguson has made 38 appearances for the Dons in all competitions this term, registering three goals and nine assists, according to Transfermarkt.
Despite his young age, Ferguson has been a first-team fixture for Derek McInnes’ side for two seasons now, and according to Mark Wilson, he has a big future in the game – “at Aberdeen or elsewhere”.
Wilson wrote in the Scottish Sun: “For one so young he’s a real leader. He very rarely misses a game, chips in with a few goals and the passion he plays with brings the best out in others.
“I think he’s got a big future in the game whether that’s at Aberdeen or elsewhere.”
With Rangers’ domestic season having collapsed since the turn of the year, questions have been asked about the Ibrox side’s mental resolve, and as such, players with Ferguson’s characteristics should be high on Gerrard’s wishlist this summer.
A classy and combative player, Ferguson has shown he’s a cut above, impressing for the Scottish Premiership’s fourth-placed team and being deemed their best player by Wilson.
Signed for just £200,000, Ferguson has been valued at a minimum of £2million by Aberdeen teammate Funso Ojo (The Scottish Sun), who has also deemed him capable of playing at “whatever level he wants”.
