Rangers legend, Barry Ferguson, has jumped on the Odsonne Edouard bandwagon by claiming he could become a better player than Moussa Dembele and make the Parkhead club more money than the £19.7m Lyon paid in 2018, per The Daily Record.
Should Rangers sign Ojo permanently?
Ferguson has not endeared himself with Rangers fans by being seen as a cheerleader for the Parkhead club’s star player. With Edouard being outperformed over the last two seasons by Ibrox rival Alfredo Morelos, many see it as a strange statement to make.
Indeed, having scored 30 goals in all competitions last season alone, it is not a surprise to see some Rangers fans left baffled by Ferguson’s take.
Ferguson said of “French Eddy” when asked about the comparison with Dembele:
“Yeah, he’s a player that could potentially be better than Dembele. I have said that a number of times. I’ve always been impressed. When he is on his game I think he is unstoppable at times”.
“He obviously continues it when he goes away with the French U-21 squad and if he keeps producing performances like that he will be in the first-team squad”.
Rangers fans took to Twitter to criticise Ferguson’s perceived favouritism considering his own allegiances and playing career, with some mocking Edouard’s recent domestic performances.
Have a look at what they have had to say below…
@Chr1sMcLaughlin Unstoppable, except when he plays against the mighty Livingston 😛

If he’s unstoppable then what’s Defoe & Morelos , Edouard isn’t even the best striker in Glasgow

Adored Barry as I was growing up. What a player. I actively avoid anything he’s quoted as saying or articles he’s written so as not to spoil it.

No, just loyalty. He got paid handsomely for doing something many of us would have died to do just once.
