Duncan Cowan Ferguson (born 27 December 1971) is a Scottish former professional footballer who is the assistant manager of Premier League club Everton. He began his career at Dundee United in 1990. Ferguson moved to Rangers in 1993 for a then British transfer record fee. He spent the remainder of his career in England, with two spells at Everton split by a stint with Newcastle United between 1998 and 2000. Ferguson retired from football in 2006.

Ferguson retired from playing in 2006, and was promoted to the first team coaching staff at Everton in 2014. Following the sacking of Everton manager Marco Silva in December 2019, Ferguson was named as the team's caretaker manager until Silva's replacement Carlo Ancelotti was appointed manager a few weeks later, at which point Ferguson was made assistant manager.

During his career, Ferguson won the FA Cup with Everton in 1995. He was capped for Scotland seven times but made himself unavailable for selection for the national team due to a dispute with the Scottish Football Association. He has scored more goals than any other Scottish player in England's Premier League since its creation in 1992.

Ferguson's aggressive style of play resulted in nine red cards and a three-month prison sentence following an on-field assault of Raith Rovers' John McStay in 1994. Eight of those red cards were in the Premier League, where he holds the joint record for dismissals along with Patrick Vieira and Richard Dunne. He was nicknamed "Big Dunc" and "Duncan Disorderly".
