Rangers should consider re-signing Lewis Ferguson

The Rangers look strong this season, but Steven Gerrard will still be looking for some extra edge to win the Scottish Premiership title.

Gers are currently at the top of the Scottish Premiership table with a nine-point lead over Celtic, and now they hope to clinch the title after a superb start to the campaign.

The January additions may push the Rangers over the line, and even with Bongani Zungu on board, the Rangers continue to be linked with a new midfielder in Kenny McLean.

However, there is one other former Rangers midfielder who should be on the Gers’ radar: Aberdeen ace Lewis Ferguson.

The 21-year-old spent four years in the Rangers setup, but was released in 2013 at just 14 years old, then made a name for himself at Hamilton Academical.

Now at Aberdeen, Ferguson has been in excellent shape this season, scoring nine goals and three assists in his first 15 games of the campaign.

Ferguson may not be the most striking target, but he is a versatile midfielder, capable of protecting his back four, playing box-to-box or in a more advanced role, possessing athletic ability and real aggression.

Throw in your goals and Ferguson is a complete prospect, and he has the added affinity of being a Rangers fan, while former Rangers players Derek and Barry Ferguson are his father and uncle, respectively.

With Steven Davis out of a contract at the end of the season, the Rangers may need to think about a midfielder for the future, and having let Ferguson out more than seven years ago, they should certainly consider bringing him back now.
