Barry Ferguson (born February 2, 1978) is a professional football player (midfield) who currently plays for Blackburn Rovers F.C. and is currently captain of the team.
Ferguson joined his boyhood heroes Rangers at the age of just thirteen. He went on to become a regular for the Glasgow giants and was made captian by manager Dick Advocaat. The arrival at Rangers of Alex McLeish had a very positive impact on Ferguson, and in the 2002/03 season he won the domestic treble as Rangers' captain. He was also voted Scottish player of the year.
Ferguson moved to Blackburn Rovers in 2003 mainly due to severe financial problems at Rangers and he was made captain of Blackburn in July 2004 replacing Gary Flitcroft.
Ferguson is also a regular fixture in the Scotland team where he was also made captian by manager Berti Vogts following the retirement of Paul Lambert.
