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

Ferguson began his playing career at Kirkintilloch Rob Roy where he was capped for Scotland at Junior level before stepping up to Partick Thistle in 1962. He went on to Morton then a brief spell in the Football League during the mid-1960s.

He was appointed player/coach at Waterford in July 1967. He made his Blues debut in Peter Fitzgerald's testimonial in August 1967. His first league goal came in the dying seconds of a home clash with Shamrock Rovers on 19 November which led to Ferguson being chaired off the pitch. He was let go in February 1968.

He then worked as a coach at Hibernian, but was sacked in 1997. He was signed by Manchester United on the recommendation of his brother Alex, and he scouted players such as Diego Forlán, Anderson, Fabio Quagliarella, Alessandro Nesta and Ruud van Nistelrooy. Ferguson retired from his position as chief scout for Manchester United in May 2013.
