Glasgow Rangers have already been busy ahead of the 2020/21 season by signing Ianis Hagi.
After impressing Rangers during his loan spell with the club before the Scottish Premiership was brought to a premature end, the Romania international has agreed to join the ‘Gers on a permanent deal. The 21-year-old scored 3 goals in 12 games for the 54-times Scottish champions, including a double against Braga in the Europa League.
Gerrard has made it clear he wants to bring in a whole bunch of new signings, as he bids to stop Celtic from winning ten in a row. The former Liverpool star is ready to raid Aberdeen for Lewis Ferguson.
The midfielder has a long history with the club, as his father and uncle played in front of the Copland Stand for many years.
However, Ferguson has recently dismissed Gerrard’s interest. Speaking to The Scottish Sun, the youngster claimed “my full focus is on getting back to training with Aberdeen and playing next season.”
The 20-year-old has made 61 appearances for the Dons, scoring 7 goals in the league at the time of writing (via Soccerbase).
He is currently valued at £1m via Transfermarkt, but it is likely Aberdeen will place a hefty price tag on his head after he was named the Double Tree By Hilton SFWA Young Player of the Year.
Unsurprisingly, lots of RFC fans didn’t take too kindly to his rebuttal, with a supporter claiming he is “not good enough,” while another added Greg Docherty is “better” in light of his performances this season. One fan countered that while he might be a good player, the asking price will be “bonkers.”
Scroll through some of the scathing reactions so far…
Not Rangers class so don't get ahead of yourself son.

I said a long while ago I think Lewis Ferguson would be a good signing for Rangers. My main issue is Aberdeen would probably be asking for the kind of money that we paid for Hagi. Which is bonkers.
