Not for the first time this season, Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson, has been linked with a move away from Pittodrie. After placing in a written transfer request after an apparent bid from Watford was rejected, his uncle, Barry Ferguson says it is probably the right time for his young nephew to move on.
Speaking on The Go Radio Football Show, Ferguson (for the second time) has suggested that a move to Celtic for his nephew wouldn’t be off the cards considering the family’s Rangers background, “My honest opinion for Lewis, for his career? I think he needs to go. Whether that’s Rangers or Celtic or whether that down to England, I think for Lewis’s development, I think he needs to leave Aberdeen now.
Should Celtic sign Lewis Ferguson?
“Aberdeen are in control of the situation. He’s not going into the final twelve months of his contract. He’s got three years which is a long, long time. So, I don’t know what’s going to happen.
“But my honest opinion for Lewis’s career and development, I think he needs to go. I just want the best for Lewis. I just want him to do the best for his career and whether it’s at Rangers, whether it’s at Celtic or whether it’s for some other club. I’m not bothered, I just want him to have a good career”.
Ferguson has impressed visiting scouts this season and as the first offer from an E.P.L side has been rejected, the feeling is he is on for a move sooner rather than later. Would Ferguson be the ideal player to replace legendary captain Scott Brown? He has the ability, the question is does he have the metal?
