LEWIS FERGUSON didn't dare to dream of la dolce vita when he saw his name linked with a Serie A switch.

And the midfielder insists he is only thinking of a sweet life with Aberdeen after helping the Dons earn a point against Rangers.

Boss Stephen Glass dismissed reports linking Ferguson with a move to Cagliari as the 'craziest thing I’ve ever seen' in the aftermath of the Pittodrie stalemate.

Speculation that Cagliari could strike a loan deal with a £3.5million option to buy at the end of the campaign always seemed far fetched.

And Ferguson paid no attention to the transfer talk as he notched up a notable Dons record on the night that Glass' side earned a deserved share of the spoils.

Ferguson said: “I don’t speak any other languages to be honest. I have seen it the way you guys have seen it.

"I haven’t had too much time to think about it. I saw it late [on Monday] night and I have had the game to focus on so I can’t really comment on it.

“I haven’t had much time to think about it because of the game.

“It is nice [to reach 150 games for Aberdeen]. I didn’t know that until a couple of days ago.

“Somebody sent me a message and it is a good feeling. I think I have also scored 30 goals.

“It is a decent return for 150 games which I am quite pleased about. Long may that continue.

“I’m an Aberdeen player just now and I will be focused on playing for Aberdeen for the foreseeable unless something happens. I don’t know anything about that.”

Rangers were on course for another league victory under Giovanni van Bronckhorst when Ianis Hagi gave the champions a first half lead.

Ferguson would deny them and set up a frantic finish with a cool penalty after his header was blocked by the arm of Alfredo Morelos.

And the 22-year-old was relieved he didn't have to retake his effort after the ball was blown off the spot by the strong north east breeze.

Ferguson said: “As I was running up to hit it, the ball has rolled the ball. I am not sure if it was off the spot or not, but I just went with it.

“It put me off a wee bit but I went and put my foot through it. Thankfully it hit the net although it caused a wee bit of a scare.

“When I ran up and it blew towards me I felt like it wasn’t on the spot when I hit it.

“I thought if I miss I might get it again but if I score then I will take it. I just concentrated on getting good contact on the ball and I was thankful it hit the net.”

The Pittodrie point was the second time that Aberdeen have denied Rangers this term after their hard-earned draw at Ibrox earlier in the campaign.

But Glass could easily have been celebrating a notable victory as his side performed well and outshone the champions for long spells.

Ferguson said: “I thought throughout the game we were the better side. I thought through the game we knocked the ball about well.

"Rangers' shape was decent and although we were knocking it about well they were making it hard to play through them.

“There weren’t a lot of gaps to play through. I thought we were well worthy of our draw at least. I actually thought we edged it."
