Darren Ferguson (born 9 February 1972) is a Scottish football manager and former player, currently in his second spell as the manager of Peterborough United. Between his first and second stints with Peterborough, he also managed Preston North End.

As a player, Ferguson was managed at Manchester United by his father Alex Ferguson, but spent most of his playing career at Wolverhampton Wanderers and Wrexham in the lower divisions of English football.

Ferguson's first managerial appointment was as player-manager of League Two Peterborough United in January 2007. After two successive promotions, and guiding the club to the second-tier of English football for the first time in 17 seasons, Ferguson was relieved of his duties on 9 November 2009, with Peterborough United at the foot of The Championship.

Ferguson was appointed Preston North End manager on 6 January 2010. He was dismissed on 29 December 2010 after a string of poor results. On 12 January 2011, he was again appointed as the manager of Peterborough United, where he took the club to the League One play-off finals at Old Trafford, and in this match won promotion to the Football League Championship, the club's third promotion in four years, with a 3 0 victory over Huddersfield.
