Aberdeen’s Goalscorer Ferguson Interesting Sean Dyche
Burnley Football Club are considering a move for Aberdeen’s teenage midfielder Lewis Ferguson, who scored a spectacular overhead kick against The Clarets in yesterday’s Europa League clash between the two sides. The goal was his first competitive goal and has impressed the Turf Moor club’s scouts.
Ferguson comes from good footballing stock as the son of former Rangers and Scotland midfielder Derek Ferguson and nephew of Barry Ferguson. Having only just moved to Aberdeen from Hamilton Academical this summer, the fee is still to be determined by a tribunal which is due to be held on the 21st August 2018.
Aberdeen manager, Derek McInnes praised the youngster’s performance against the Clarets saying, “I thought he epitomised a lot of my team, the focus is on him because he is so young, but he has that personality and confidence. He is having to learn quickly and is an outstanding young man who will only get better.
Nothing fazes him and that’s what I love about him, he is only 18 but technically and physically he can handle it against proper men. When he gets moments to light up the game and shows he’s more than that, he took his goal fantastically well.”
