Lewis Ferguson, formerly on the books at Rangers as a youth player and son of former Ibrox midfielder Derek, scored a brilliant goal for Aberdeen in UEFA Europa League qualifying last night.
The Dons pushed English Premier League outfit Burnley all the way at Turf Moor, eventually beaten 3-1 after extra time on the night.
Sean Dyche’s side had taken the lead early on, but Aberdeen responded midway through the first half thanks to the below strike from Lewis Ferguson, the first senior goal of his career.
This is special. This is unbelievable!

The midfielder was let go from the Ibrox side as a youth player, subsequently registering at Hamilton and making a first-team breakthrough last season.
He impressed enough to attract the interest of bigger clubs, with Aberdeen signing him this summer after his contract at Accies expired.
Given his Rangers connections, son of Derek and nephew of legend Barry, he’s definitely a player we should be keeping an eye on over the coming years.
Still just 18 years of age, he appears to have excellent potential.
