Rangers-linked midfielder subject of £2million Premier League swoop - report

Aberdeen have rejected £2million bid for midfielder Lewis Ferguson from Watford with Rangers said to be set to rival the Hornets for the Scotland under-21 star, according to the Scottish Sun.

The Dons could face a renewed bid from the Premier League-bound side after being impressed by the 21-year-old although Aberdeen boss Steven Glass saying any potential suitors would need a “lot of money” to lure him away from Pittodrie.

Ranges have continually been named as a future destination for Ferguson given his links to the club and Glass doesn’t even think he needs to “convince” Ferguson his future lies in the Granite City, saying: “Lewis has played in cup finals and he’s going to be an international player.

“I don’t need to convince Lewis to stay — he loves it at the club.

“If someone comes in for him, they are going to need a lot of money to get him away from here.”

Ferguson already has well over 130 senior games under his belt after breaking through at Hamilton but Gers fans have been split on whether he would be a worthwhile addition to Steven Gerrard’s side.

With ten goals and five assists from 41 appearances this season, Ferguson couldn’t quite replicate the form that saw him win the SFWA Young Player of the Year award in 2019/20 but has had a decent campaign for the Pittodrie side.

The sort of money Aberdeen are looking for though means it’s probably best that Rangers look at other targets rather than spending as much as three or four million on someone who would still be quite a bit off a starting spot in the Gers side.

In other news, the scenes in Glasgow on Saturday night were shameful but ‘othering’ of Rangers fans equally troubling
