Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson has said it would be an ‘honour’ to represent Scotland one day.
The 19-year-old impressed during his first season in Aberdeen. Despite still being a teenager, Ferguson is one of the first names on the Dons teamsheet nowadays.
He’ll make his 50th appearance for the Red Army against Rijeka in the Europa League, a fantastic achievement for his age.
He hopes that his Pittodrie form can result in a Scotland call-up, although he wants to focus on doing all he can for the Dons right now.
Ferguson told the National: “It would be an honour to play for Scotland or even to get called up. I don’t really think too much of it. I just go out and try to perform for Aberdeen.
“If and when that does come, I’ll take it. Obviously it would be a very proud moment but I don’t think too much about it. I just take every day as it comes and try to perform for Aberdeen.”
Aberdeen star Ferguson has the ability to play for Scotland
Aberdeen’s midfield battler has featured for Scotland’s youth sides. You’d like to think in the coming years he would pull on the jersey for the senior side.
John McGinn, Scott McTominay, Kenny McLean, Callum McGregor and many others are vying for places in the national team right now. Ferguson may have to put his Scotland dream on hold for now.
At 19 though he has plenty of time to make an impression yet. He’s already started to show his pedigree. Playing 50 games for one of Scotland’s best clubs by the age of 19 is no mean feat.
An energetic midfielder with an eye for goal, Ferguson has proven he will be a big player for Aberdeen, both now and in the future. He could be the heartbeat of the Red Army midfield for many years.
If he continues his positive development, there’s no reason why he can’t become a Scotland international in the coming years.
