RoverTalk with Calum Ferguson


Team supported as a boy?

I grew up supporting my local team Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

What age did you know you wanted to be a footballer?

My family called me Caley as a nickname, so when I found out there was a club with that name that was me.

What would you say your strengths are in football?

I’d probably say my movement and finishing.

What clubs have you been at?

Ross county and Inverness Caley Thistle and now of course Rovers!

Pre-match superstitions?

I always take a water bottle from the changing room and put it next to the pitch before a game. Bit of a weird one!

Pre-match meals?

Scrambled eggs on toast, can never go wrong.

Best player you’ve played with and against?

Best player I’ve played with is probably Graeme Shinnie at Inverness or Cyle Larin from the Canadian squad. Best I’ve played against probably Gerard Deulefau.

Most embarrassing moment in a match?

When I scored my first goal for Canada I knee slid on Astro truff to celebrate. Never a good idea I slit my knees open and had to bandage them up for two months.

Best chant you’ve ever heard?

Got to be the ‘Will Griggs on fire’ one, everyone goes mental when it comes on!!

Would you want to get into management in the future?

Wouldn’t rule it out but that’s a long way away yet.

Who is the best player in training?

The Dunlop brothers think they are that’s for sure, guys are stuck together with glue.

Who moans the most in the squad?

Waldo (Ryan Wallace) loves a good moan, but that’s football.

Who is the joker in the squad?

Fish is a joker, he’s either joking around or he’s in the gym.

Funniest dressing room prank in your career so far?

When I was at Inverness Ryan Christie signed me up to the TV show ‘Undateables’ without me knowing and I got a phone call from them asking about my apparent Tourette’s and if I wanted to be on the new series.

Where would you like to be, in terms of football, in five years time?

Hopefully back involved with the Canadian set-up and playing regular professional games.
