While a tonne of things took place on Saturday’s Trophy Day, one of the less talked-about was the ‘audition’ at Ibrox of a player many want to see in our jersey.
While he’s been at Ibrox before, Lewis Ferguson’s links to Rangers have only grown in the past year, beyond the obvious name and family connections.
Whether he’s destined to come to Rangers or not, many fans think he is, and this was a bit of a showpiece occasion to demonstrate his viability.
And we must say, unlike Scott Wright’s obviously impressive showing against us at the start of the season before we signed him, Ferguson’s performance on Saturday, aside the horror open goal miss, was pretty average at best on the eyes, but actually not bad in terms of raw numbers.
His passing average was a very solid 88%, and he managed two successful dribbles and was fouled four times. He attacked well, with 3 shots, and that one on target.
It isn’t incredible, but given Aberdeen were rather swept away by Rangers, he did well enough to post some good stats, even if he didn’t really stand out visually.
Is he good enough for Rangers?
Did we think Dundee’s Glen Kamara was?
Ferguson is a talent, and he’s not at the right team for that to bloom. Whether he is good enough to evolve into the Rangers shirt only time could tell, but if Stevie does make the move to bring him in, it’ll be a move we trust.
We shall see on this one.
