Lewis Ferguson would be a “great” signing for Rangers as he is a player for both the present and the future, according to Paul Robinson.

The former Spurs and England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the 21-year-old could learn a lot from former greats Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister if he moved to Ibrox.

Football Insider revealed Rangers are plotting a move for the Aberdeen midfielder, who is the son of Derek Ferguson and the nephew of Barry Ferguson, both of whom played for the Gers.

It is understood that Ferguson is “desperate” to join Steven Gerrard’s side in the upcoming window if a deal can be reached.

Ferguson has already had a transfer request rejected by the Dons following an “insulting” bid from a Premier League club, believed to be Watford.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Ferguson’s future, Robinson said:

“Ferguson certainly wouldn’t need to be explained the history of the club. He will know better than most what is expected of you when you are at Rangers. I am sure he has dreamed about playing for Rangers as a boy.

“He is the right age as well so from Rangers point of view at the very least he will have great re-sale value.

“Gerrard is building something special there and with Ferguson he would be signing for the present as well as the future.

“He could learn so much from Gerrard and McAllister being a midfielder as well. It could be a great move.”
