Derek Ferguson Backs Rangers Move for Bojan Miovski, Calls It a “No-Brainer”

Bojan Miovski would be a “no-brainer” signing for Rangers if they can secure him, according to Derek Ferguson. However, Ferguson believes that manager Philippe Clement may need to be particularly persuasive to make it happen.

Reported by FotMob on May 23, Rangers are in the race to sign the Aberdeen striker, competing with Celtic and Southampton. Former Aberdeen boss Neil Warnock previously suggested Miovski could be sold this summer, with interest from Old Firm clubs.

Former Ibrox midfielder Ferguson acknowledged that if it comes down to a financial battle between Rangers and Celtic, the Hoops have the upper hand. “If it comes down to money, who’s got more money, it’s going to be Celtic. We know that,” he said. “There’s Champions League, they’ve got a few bob in the bank. So we’ve got to attract him in some other way and that comes down to the manager.”

Ferguson suggested that despite fans’ views, there is no “shame” in Rangers providing a platform for players like Miovski to showcase their talents and eventually move to the Premier League. “Sometimes it’s not money, maybe the other thing is just gaining that platform to show his worth to get him down to England. There’s nae shame in that,” Ferguson said. “If a player comes to us at Rangers and plays out of his skin for a couple of seasons, does ever so well, I don’t mind him heading down south to make the big bucks and get a wee bit more of the limelight.”

Ferguson is confident that Miovski could excel at Rangers, citing the example of Cyriel Dessers, who scored 22 goals last season despite the team’s inconsistent performance. “You look at Dessers, he scored 22 goals in a team that’s never really hit the heights this season,” he noted. “But if you can imagine a Rangers side at it, playing well, full pelt every week, I can see Miovski scoring 30-40 goals in a Rangers side with the amount of chances we’d be able to make for him.”

In conclusion, Ferguson expressed his admiration for Miovski’s abilities and reiterated his belief that signing the North Macedonian striker would be a wise move for Rangers. “There’s a lot to like about Miovski, absolutely,” he said. “Miovski’s a no-brainer for me.”
