LEWIS FERGUSON admits he’s aware of reports linking him with a move to Rangers but believes he can fulfil his ambition of winning trophies by staying at Aberdeen.

The midfielder was addressing recent speculation after being voted the Double Tree by Hilton Scottish Football Writers’ Association Young Player of the Year.

Ferguson is said to feature high on the transfer wish-list of Steven Gerrard as the Ibrox manager looks to rebuild his squad for the challenge of stopping Celtic from completing 10-in-a-row.

The 20-year-old son of former Ibrox midfielder Derek, and nephew of one-time Rangers captain Barry, has been tipped to follow in their footsteps.

But he believes that developments at Aberdeen, including the arrival of chairman Dave Cormack and the opening of the training ground that bears his name, underline their ambition to challenge for domestic honours.

He said: “I’ve just seen [the transfer speculation] the same way as everybody else. I don’t read too much into that but I’ve obviously been shown it on social media and stuff.

“When you see stuff like that [he has also been linked to Brentford], you’re obviously doing something right to have clubs looking at you. But my full focus is on getting back to training with Aberdeen and playing next season.

“The past couple of seasons at Aberdeen I’ve wanted to achieve things and get trophies. Nothing’s changed; this season the aim is to try and get silverware. Everyone in their football career wants to win trophies and it’s no different for me.

“I think the club shares my ambition. We have a chairman who loves the club and knows what he is doing, and we also have a top training facility, so we know we are heading in the right way.”
