Fergus Tiernan (born 3 January 1982 in Helensburgh, Scotland) is a former football midfielder who retired from the sport in 2009 at the age of 27.

Football career[edit]

Tiernan began his career at Scottish Premier League club Aberdeen, and also had spells at Ross County and Dumbarton before his initial decision to retire in January 2009. He made a brief comeback with Queen's Park later in 2009 before changing his mind once again.

Career after football[edit]

Having become a firefighter after dropping out of full-time football, Tiernan found it difficult to accommodate his football and work commitments. He retired from professional football at the age of 27 in 2009.[1]
