Some Celtic fans have been discussing the theoretical idea of signing Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson after his uncle, former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson, suggested that the player would not be fazed by a switch.

The Dons man has strong links to Ibrox with father Derek and uncle Barry formerly turning out for our rivals.

However, this season he’s been one of the standout young performers in the Scottish Premiership, leading to chatter about a potential move to a bigger club.

Barry Ferguson was asked about the matter on PLZ Soccer yesterday, saying: “Of course he would consider it. It’s a big club. Would I talk to him again? I’d need to think about that!

“He’s the type of boy that it wouldn’t faze him. It wouldn’t bother him about his dad playing at Rangers and obviously his uncle playing for Rangers.

“If it was the right fit for him, Lewis has got to look out for his own future so if Celtic came in I think he would have to consider it.”

Lewis has already been linked with a move to Rangers in the past, with The Scottish Sun reporting back in November that their Sporting Director Ross Wilson was a big fan of the player and viewed him as a future Ibrox star.

Having been a regular for Aberdeen this season, could Celtic become interested in his talents if transfers become viable during the ongoing Scottish football crisis?

Some fans are keen on the idea, discussing the theoretical transfer on Twitter this week after Barry Ferguson’s comments. It’s fair to say that others are not keen, however.
