Barry Ferguson Questions Rangers’ Pursuit of Bojan Miovski Amid Overpriced

The transfer rumor mill is abuzz with speculation about Rangers’ interest in Aberdeen striker Bojan Miovski, but former Ibrox captain Barry Ferguson isn’t convinced, considering the reported £4.5 million price tag to be excessive.

Ferguson, expressing his reservations, stated, “I think he’s overpriced though. I don’t think he’s worth £4.5 million.” Highlighting concerns about repeating past mistakes, he referenced Rangers’ previous high-profile signings like Cyriel Dessers and Sam Lammers, who are yet to justify their substantial price tags.

Rangers, having faced criticism for their summer acquisitions, seem to be cautious about splurging again. Philippe Clement, the Rangers manager, acknowledged the need for a striker, but Ferguson may find solace in the fact that the club is hesitant to proceed with the deal if Aberdeen insists on a fee exceeding £4 million.

In discussing Miovski’s playing style, Ferguson acknowledged the striker’s ability to consistently get into scoring positions, saying, “He misses chances but it never seems to affect him. He might miss one or two but gets in positions to take the next one.”

The Scottish Sun reports that Miovski, also drawing interest from Celtic, could become the subject of a record-breaking transfer within the Premiership. Aberdeen reportedly seeks a fee surpassing the £4.4 million paid by Celtic for Scott Brown in 2007, which remains the highest transfer deal between two top-flight Scottish clubs.
