With Turin and Italian giants Juventus ready to make a £20M January bid for Bologna’s Lewis Ferguson, it once again shows what a mistake Rangers made not bothering to make the move for him, and how staggeringly ignorant some supporters are to claim he’s still not good enough.
The ex-Aberdeen midfielder, 24, shone easily as the Dons’ best player, winning youth player of the year in Scotland, before Bologna quickly swooped in and secured him for £6M.
Meanwhile many Rangers supporters were still telling anyone who’d listen that the lad wasn’t good enough.
Now, an ever-present for Bologna in Serie A, he’s set to get a January move to the Old Lady herself with Juve ready to make around £20M as a bid to prise him from the midtable and install him as a major player at one of Italy’s biggest clubs.
Fellow Serie A goliaths AC Milan have also been credited with interest.
The funny thing is, despite one of the world’s biggest clubs about make a huge bid for him, there will still be tonnes of Rangers fans who reckon he isn’t good enough to face St Mirren in the Ibrox shirt.
There is an incredible snobbiness among our support, the same ones who’d reject Shankland, Doig and Hickey… what do they all have in common we wonder…
But this is clearly one Rangers missed out on. Ferguson has the talent to go all the way in the game, and if Bianconeri do make the move and bring him into their fold, it will only highlight the incompetence of our former scouting and management as well as board, that talent like he, so desperate to come to Rangers because we are his team, has gone elsewhere and risen to the top of football.
Still, we got Cifuentes…
