Derek Ferguson has insisted that his son Lewis is loving life at Aberdeen despite recent talk of Rangers interest.

A report claimed recently that the Glasgow side are interested in the Dons midfielder (Scottish Sun). Ferguson’s been in fine form for Aberdeen this season, with his manager calling him a ‘huge player’ recently.

Speaking on BBC Sportsound, his dad insists he hasn’t heard any murmurs of a move to Rangers for his son.

“I’ve heard nothing,” said Ferguson. “All I can say is that he’s really happy up there at the moment. The coaching staff have been absolutely top drawer, not just Derek McInnes, but the guys in the background.

“He’s well looked after and if we are talking about development there’s no better place than where he is.”

Ferguson has long-term Aberdeen ties

Despite his age, Ferguson has already made over 50 Aberdeen appearances and could hit 75 this season. So far he’s featured 18 times in all competitions, scoring twice and notching five assists.

With a contract running until 2024, Aberdeen are in a good position to ask for a high fee from anyone who comes calling for one of their key assets.

He’s tied down at Pittodrie for at least four and half years, so any materialised Rangers bid will have to be comfortably in the seven figures area before Aberdeen’s head is even turned.
