However, the midfielder’s agent has suggested that it is the youngster’s dream to play in the English top flight, with Watford believed to circling.

The Latest: Hutton believes Ferguson wants Ibrox move

Speaking to Football Insider, Hutton believes that Ferguson will be eager to make the move to Ibrox. He said:

“We know the ties he’s got family-wise. He’d be desperate to follow in their footsteps also and play for Rangers.

“It didn’t work out for him as a kid there. Sometimes that gives you that little chip on your shoulder to go back and prove yourself. 

“You say the word legacy, that’s exactly what it is with his dad and obviously Barry as well, who was the captain. You want to continue that. He obviously tried as a kid and it didn’t quite work out. Maybe it made him the player he is today.

“It’s like anything, you look at Aberdeen, he’s possibly outgrown them now. He wants to go to Rangers, he wants to improve again. The opportunity, hopefully, will be there and then he’s still young, he can then move on from there.

“It would be nice for him to continue that Ferguson legacy through Rangers because it means so much to them as a family. The bottom line is he’s good enough to play within that team, in my opinion.”

The Verdict: Don’t baulk

Ferguson has enjoyed a good campaign with Aberdeen. The Scotland under-21 international scored 10 goals and provided five assists in all competitions (Transfermarkt), showing his attacking threat from the middle of the park. Given that his father Derek and uncle Barry both appeared for Rangers, it makes sense for him to heavily linked with a move to the 55-time Scottish champions.

Former Aberdeen defender Willie Miller reckons that the Dons will be looking for at least £4m to part ways with their young asset (Evening Express), which is a considerable sum in the Premiership. However, with the Gers targeting a Champions League campaign, they cannot afford to baulk at such prices, so hopefully they can attract Ferguson to Ibrox if the price is right and if that is what he wants.
