Former Rangers captain Lee McCulloch, believes the club will be regretting a decision they made several years back.
The 19-year-old has certainly been a thorn in Steven Gerrard’s side this season.
He scored the winner in the League Cup semi-final, back in October. Furthermore, he played a role in dumping the Gers out of the Scottish Cup on Tuesday night.
‘He is still just 19, he hasn’t played 75 first team games in his career and he was turning up at Ibrox with such belief in himself’, McCulloch wrote of Ferguson, in the Evening Times.
The praise didn’t stop there though.
“He was flying into tackles, he was taking the ball and moving it forward and he was getting up the park and getting beyond the striker. He wanted it so much and he was superb.”
“The sorry thing for Rangers is that he was on the books when he was a young kid and he was told he wasn’t good enough and that he wouldn’t make it at Ibrox. So he was released.”
“That looks like it has come back to bite Rangers.”
It’s tough to argue with the former skipper here.
Especially in the inexplicable absence of Ross McCrorie, Rangers lacked that fire and determination in midfield.
Contrastingly, in Ferguson and Shinnie, the Dons had it in abundance.
