RANGERS have been urged to sign Aberdeen top talent Calvin Ramsay.

Former Ibrox fans' favourite Andy Halliday admits he would love to see his boyhood club sign the young right back.

Manchester United, Leicester, Watford and Newcastle have all been credited with interest in the 18-year-old.

Nathan Patterson recently left Rangers for Premier League side Everton in what is a life-changing move for the Scotland international.

And Halliday reckons Patterson's ideal replacement at Ibrox could be Aberdeen's Ramsay.

Speaking on Open Goal, Halliday said: “I don’t know if I’d want Balogun being back up going forward because he is a natural centre back.

“I’m going to give you a name, Calvin Ramsay at Aberdeen. I like him.”

After some debate with the panel - which included host Si Ferry, Kevin Kyle and special guest Stuart Findlay, Halliday continued: “Football changes so quickly.

“You don’t know if a player like that does go and then James Tavernier breaks his leg tomorrow and he’s out for six months.

“If you’ve got Balogun in for St Mirren or Ross County at home that no disrespect, you’re expected to win, then fair enough.

“But if you’re going to Parkhead and Tavernier is injured or suspended? I know he did well in the game at Ibrox but there’s no doubt that every Rangers fan when they seen Balogun was right back was worried.”
