Martin Ferguson (born 21 December 1942 in Glasgow) is a Scottish former football player, who currently works as a scout for Manchester United. Ferguson is the brother of the current Manchester United manager, Alex Ferguson. He is Manchester United's chief European scout, and as such he is often sent to scout for talented players in mainland Europe.

Ferguson briefly played in both the Scottish Football League and The Football League during the mid 1960s, before becoming player/manager of Irish club Waterford. He then worked as a coach at Hibernian, but was sacked in 1997. He was then signed by Manchester United on the recommendation of Sir Alex, and has since scouted players such as Diego Forlán, Anderson, Fabio Quagliarella, Alessandro Nesta and Ruud van Nistelrooy.
