Rangers legend Barry Ferguson has given his thoughts on the PFA Young Player of the Year award, on PLZ Soccer’s ‘The Football Show.’ 
Ahead of the show, he was asked to select four contenders for the prestigious accolade.
His shortlist was: Lewis Ferguson, David Turnbull, Jake Hastie and Ross McCrorie.
Lewis Ferguson, is, of course, Barry’s nephew. He’s impressed in midfield for Aberdeen this season with his tough tackling and knack for important goals.

Meanwhile, both Turnbull and Hastie, have been thriving for Motherwell. Turnbull recently cleaned up at Well’s awards night, while Hastie has reportedly agreed to join Rangers on a pre-contract deal [
STV].
The former seems a more likely candidate for this award, though, considering Hastie only rose to prominence after the turn of the year.
However, the Gers did have one representative already at Ibrox. 21-year-old Ross McCrorie.

“Every time he plays for Rangers, I’m impressed by the young boy”, said Ferguson on PLZ Soccer’s ‘The Football Show’.

It must be said it’s unlikely he’ll scoop this award, though. With 17 appearances, he, like Hastie, simply hasn’t played enough. The arrival of Glen Kamara in January saw to that.
Ferguson latterly decided to add a fifth name into the mix too. He initially didn’t include Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer, as he didn’t realise he was as young as 20.
Given his consistency and Celtic’s strong defensive record this season, he’s bound to be a leading candidate.
