Aberdeen Boss Derek McInnes Reckons Lewis Ferguson Will Soon Be a Scotland Player

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has backed Lewis Ferguson to win a Scotland cap, after the midfielder’s late winner against Kilmarnock this afternoon.

The Dons were up against it for a lot of today’s match at Rugby Park after Kris Boyd gave the home side the lead from the penalty spot after 32 minutes, but things soon turned upside down in the second-half.

Substitute Bruce Anderson hauled McInnes’s men level after 73 minutes, and with a point each looking like the outcome, Ferguson conjured up a slice of magic with just three minutes remaining, as he bent a brilliant free-kick into the bottom corner.

It’s the second time in a week Ferguson has scored a dramatic late winner for his team, and after the full-time whistle, via the Sun, McInnes beamed:

“For me, Lewis will play for Scotland.

“Whether he is ready for it now, it’s not my job to do that.

“The boy was born to play football and born to play on the big occasion.

“I’m sure everything will come his way in time.

“He has had to deal with everything that has come his way since the semi-final winner.

“Some youngsters can be a bit baw-heided and get carried away.

“Lewis’ temperament has never been in question.

He might only be 19 but do you reckon Ferguson has already done enough to be considered for a Scotland berth? Lets be honest, we need all the help we can get when it comes to international football!
