Ferguson believes the deal is one that plenty of benefits for Rangers. He told Ibrox News of what he has heard: “I heard that about an hour ago. I’d have got in trouble if I’d have brought it up. Yep, the wee fella’s a good player, definitely is in that midfield role.

“He’s not going to cost us anything as well, his contract’s up. I think he’s over in Portugal at the minute on holiday so I think he’s going to be flying back.

“If there’s a deal to be done he’s a good player, very impressed with him, he was in the running with the boys for the young player of the year. So yes, he’s not going to cost us anything, we can improve him. I think he’ll be better in a dominant Rangers side.”

It’s been a busy summer at Rangers and it shows no sign of slowing down just yet. They have already signed Jefte, Oscar Cortes and Clinton Nsiala while the likes of John Lundstram, Borna Barisic and others have left the club amid a major rebuild.
