Barry Ferguson Optimistic about Rangers Gem Ross McCausland’s Future Amid Brentford Interest

Barry Ferguson shared his thoughts on the ongoing speculation surrounding Rangers’ winger Ross McCausland and Brentford’s reported interest. Ferguson expressed hope that the Northern Irish international would extend his stay at Ibrox by signing a new contract.

McCausland, who has recently earned a spot in the first team under manager Philippe Clement, has become the subject of transfer rumors, with Brentford closely monitoring the situation as his contract with Rangers approaches its conclusion.

While the allure of Premier League football may be enticing for the young talent, Ferguson is optimistic that McCausland will choose to remain with Rangers, continuing his development and solidifying his position in the starting XI in the months to come.

During the Go Radio Football Show on November 20th, Ferguson voiced his belief, stating, “I think there’s a contract on the table from Rangers so I’d like to think where he’s been given a chance, he’ll put pen to paper and he’ll commit to a new contract at Rangers.”

Acknowledging McCausland’s positive impact on the team, Ferguson added, “He’s been a breath of fresh air, to be honest with you since he’s come into the team, he’s come off the bench and did really well, got his first start against Livingston, I thought he was really good.”

Expressing his preference for nurturing young talent within the club, Ferguson emphasized, “I would like to see him stay put, as I said, I always like to see young players come through the system and that’s what he’s done and hopefully he’ll sign a new deal.”

Ferguson concluded the discussion by praising McCausland’s capabilities and offering advice for the future, stating, “He’s shown that he’s more than capable. Now it’s just about kicking on, ‘Can I go and cement a place in that Rangers team?’ He’s certainly got the attributes, now it’s just about making sure you keep your head down, feet on the ground, work hard and try and become a regular.”
