Duncan Ferguson

Where is Duncan Ferguson now?

An eventful career ended for Duncan Ferguson when he retired from the game in 2006 after a second spell at Everton.

He was noted for his aggressive and highly competitive style of play, which resulted in nine career red cards and a three-month jail sentence following an on-field assault of Raith Rovers John McStay in 1994.

Ferguson finished his career having made over 400 first-team appearances and scoring over 100 goals and was a Scottish Premier League and Cup winner with Rangers as well as an FA Cup winner with Everton.

He also played for the Scotland national side on seven occasions but refused to be considered for selection after 1997 as a protest against the SFA after the 12-game ban they gave him upon his prison release.

Retiring from playing at the age of 34, Ferguson took a five year break from the game before joining former club Everton, coaching the youth teams in an unofficial capacity, as he prepared to take his coaching qualifications.

He gained valuable experience coaching the under-18’s academy side alongside Kevin Sheedy and was promoted to the first team as a coach by manager Roberto Martinez in 2014.

Staying on the backroom staff when the Spaniard was sacked, Ferguson was part of the coaching setup under Ronald Koeman, Sam Allardyce and Marco Silva before a stint as caretaker manager in December 2019.

Upon the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti, he was moved into his current role as assistant manager.
