Ferguson was Ancelotti's assistant at Everton during the Italian's brief stay on Merseyside between December 2019 and June 2021, and Ancelotti sang his former partner's praises when speaking to Rovers.
According to The Sun, it is unclear if Ferguson would be interested in moving to Ewood Park, but his former counterpart gave a glowing recommendation of the Scot.

Ferguson had two spells in caretaker charge of the Toffees, but is yet to manage permanently
Rovers are on the lookout for a new manager after Tony Mowbray left the club at the end of least season after over five years in charge.
He took Blackburn to the Championship, but couldn't get them into the play-off spots - something the Rovers higher-ups will be looking for their new manager to do.
Ferguson wasn't initially considered by Blackburn, but a call from the Real Madrid boss may change the owners' minds.
Ancelotti left Everton for Madrid at the end of last season and went onto win his record-breaking fourth Champions League when his side beat Liverpool in Paris last week.
He thought so highly of Ferguson that he tried to take him to Spain with him, but the Everton legend chose to stay in Merseyside for the time being.
He worked with former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez, before joining new manager Frank Lampard's backroom team when the current manager took over in January.
As a player, Ferguson scored 73 goals in 268 games for Everton, before retiring in 2006.
The 50-year-old has had two stints in caretaker charge of Everton, and may now be ready to take his first step into management, with Blackburn the possible destination.
