Celtic pundit Paul John Dykes has talked about Lewis Ferguson, saying that he’d take the man at Parkhead in a heartbeat.

On the latest episode of the ‘A Celtic State of Mind’ podcast, the panel talked about numerous issues involving the Hoops. One topic of discussion was Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson and whether they’d like him at Celtic.

Dykes believes that the Scotsman has progressed well since he joined the -based club and he is ready for a step-up to a club like Celtic soon.

Ferguson found the back of the net for the Dons in Aberdeen’s recent 1-1 draw against Celtic. His uncle Barry Ferguson has previously talked up the midfielder’s potential move to Parkhead too.

Dykes talked about the 21-year-old Scotsman and said (39:36): “Lewis Ferguson, I’d have him in a heartbeat. He looks like a player that’s progressed so well since he went from to Aberdeen. But I also think that he can make the step and I’m saying the step up to Celtic, as if we’re lauding it over Aberdeen at the moment. But in terms of the club, I think it’s a step up from Aberdeen to Celtic.”
