Club career

Early career

Ferguson has been a keen Rangers fan since childhood. His older brother, Derek, was a rising star in the Rangers team in the 1980s (though the younger sibling's achievements would eventually eclipse those of the older) and the young Barry was exposed to the inner circle of the club long before officially joining the Rangers first team squad in 1994-95. Ferguson made his first team debut on the last day of the 1996-97 season against Hearts and was voted man of the match for his performance.

Graeme Souness made Ferguson captain of Blackburn in July 2004 and he seemed to be adapting well to Premiership football, despite the team still struggling and a managerial change, which saw Mark Hughes replacing Souness. However, after just 16 months at the club, Ferguson submitted a written transfer request, admitting that the draw of playing in the Premiership and a Lancashire derby could not compare with an Old Firm match.[3] After much discussion between the clubs, a fee of £4.5 million was agreed and Ferguson rejoined Rangers just before the close of the transfer window in January 2005.[4] Ferguson would later reveal in his book that the fee Rangers paid was actually £2.0 million pounds plus the fees Blackburn owed from the original transfer.

On January 1, 2007 it was announced on a Sportsound broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland that Ferguson had been stripped of the Rangers captaincy after a meeting with manager Paul Le Guen. He was also dropped from the squad for the next match. Later Le Guen claimed Ferguson was undermining him.[7] The match at Motherwell was won 1-0 by Rangers, and goalscorer Kris Boyd reportedly showed solidarity with the deposed skipper by holding up 6 fingers: Ferguson's shirt number.[8] Following the resignation of Paul Le Guen as Rangers manager on January 4, 2007,[9] Ferguson was re-instated to the Rangers side. Later that year, sports journalist Graham Spiers published, Paul Le Guen: Enigma (ISBN 1845962915) documenting his tenure at the club. According to Spiers, Le Guen left the club because he was being "undermined" by other Rangers personnel, including Ferguson and then club doctor, Ian McGuinness.
