1997-98: 5 apps, of which 4 League and 1 FAI Cup.
The 35-year old Ian Ferguson failed to live up to his reputation as a top notch goal-scorer in a Dundalk career that was limited to 5 games and was seriously affected by an injury in the FAI Cup first round 5-0 victory over non-League Swilly Rovers on Jan 12 1998.
An accidental clash with the Swilly keeper resulted in simply more than bruising and it was two months before re re-appeared for three more matches before calling it quits.
His CV included Scottish caps at youths and under-21 level and he was credited with 136 goals in over 400 first class match appearances in a career that brought him to Dundee, Rangers, Dundee United, Hearts, Charlton (loan), Bristol City (loan), Motherwell, Airdree and he was with Portadown in the year before coming to Dundalk.
His honours list included all the Scottish competitions. One of his career highlights was the 1987 UEFA Cup campaign with Dundee United losing 2-1 in a two-legged final against Gothenburg after scoring in the Nou Camp against Barcelona and against Borussia Monchengladbach on the way to the final.
He finished his playing career after one last season in non-league football with Gretna.
