I'm an old enough rangers supporter to have also watched derek ferguson breaking through and playing for rangers. Like barry his younger brother, derek was a terrific midfielder. A lot of fellow bears round about my age actually think derek was better than barry. If i had to choose, i'd say barry was better than derek, but not by a great deal.
Fellow bears out there, who did you rate the better midfielder between the ferguson siblings, derek or barry and what would be your reasons for your choice?

Bazza for me as he played better and more game time to do so!

Is this a serious question? It’s like comparing little mix to the Beatles.

Derek definitely has the edge for me, tremendous player when he broke thru as a teenager in the 80’s and later more than held his own in the esteemed company of Souness, Durrant and Wilkins. Only problem was usual Scottish lack of respect and appreciation of the opportunity presented. Barry on the other hand took full advantage of his opportunity and achieved much more.

Barry for me. Stephen Kelly coming through is the next top central midfielder that we will produce.

Clearly Barry was the better player. Had the mentality whereas Derek did not. I loved Derek when he broke in to the team but Derek through his career away.

For me Derek was the better player comparing then at a young age he was fantastic but like a lot of our players he lost his way fell out with Souness and when that happens your finished but both were great players and Barry went on to captain the club but comparing the two as teenagers it’s Derek for me.

Barry Ferguson was dominating games, big games, from a young age. Vision, skill, determination and leadership in abundance and could get a goal. For me, a true modern Rangers legend. Derek was a player, but didn't have Barry's fire.

Like Hastie et al, I'll be surprised is Stephen Kelly ever gets a chance.
