Barry Ferguson MBE (born 2 February 1978) is a Scottish footballer who plays as a midfielder for Blackpool.

Ferguson has made 82 appearances in European competitions, all for Rangers, which makes him the record European appearance holder at the club. He was also inducted into the Rangers F.C. Hall of Fame. Ferguson overtook David Narey's record for the number of European appearances made whilst playing for a Scottish club, by starting in a UEFA Cup match against Werder Bremen. He broke Kenny Dalglish's record for the number of competitive European appearances by a Scottish footballer when he played in his 80th match in Europe, against Sporting CP.

Ferguson made 45 appearances for the Scotland national team. In 2009, following behavioral incidents while on Scotland duty, he was stripped of the captaincy of Rangers and told he would no longer be considered for international selection.

Ferguson was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) on 17 June 2006.
