Cove Rangers manager John Sheran believes new signing Ryan Ferguson can be a “real asset” during his time at the club.
The 24-year-old has joined the Highland League champions on loan from League One side Montrose until January.
Ferguson is versatile and can play anywhere on the right flank or up front.
The addition of Ferguson, who has spent his entire career in the SPFL, strengthens Cove’s squad further as the Granite City side look to retain the Highland League title this season.
Balmoral Stadium boss Sheran thinks Ferguson can have a big impact for his team between now and the new year.
He said: “Ryan is a player I have always admired.
“We are grateful to Montrose for allowing us to take him in on loan.
“Ryan will be a real asset to us between now and the turn of the year.”
Ferguson started his career with Dundee United, but left Tannadice in January 2014 following a loan spell with Dunfermline earlier that season.
After leaving the Tangerines Ferguson joined Brechin City.
Following 16 appearances for the Hedgemen in the second part of the 2013/14 season Ferguson featured 27 times for the Angus outfit the following campaign.
In the summer of 2015 he joined Montrose and made 32 appearances during his first term at Links Park. In the 2016/17 Ferguson played the same number of games.
Last campaign he featured less in Stewart Petrie’s team, but still helped them win the League Two title and earlier this term Ferguson played in the Gable Endies’ Irn-Bru Cup win over Cove on penalties.
