The Old Firm club will now find difficult to get a result next week in the return leg in Rotterdam.
Japanese international Shinji Ono put Feyenoord in front with 18 minutes remaining in the match, after both sides failed to find the net in the first half.
However, with less than ten minutes remaining, Ferguson converted a spot-kick to give The Gers a chance to reclaim the tie at the De Kuip Stadium next week
Internazionale all but sealed their place in the quarter-finals, after disposing of Greek outfit AEK Athens 3-1 in their first leg match in the Guiseppe Meazza.
Theo Zagorakis had put AEK into a shock 1-0 lead early on but Inter's Javier Zanetti equalised minutes later.
Mohammed Kallon put the home side in front after half-an-hour as Inter went into the break with a 2-1 lead.
Nicola Ventola sealed victory in the second half, to set up an easier trip to Athens but AEK have a chance to get back into the tie, thanks to Zagorakis's away goal.
Elsewhere, Sidney Govou came off the bench to score in the last minute to salvage Lyon a 1-1 home draw with Czech side Slovan Liberec.
The away side took the lead early in the match, after Jiri Stajner converted a penalty to give Liberec a valuable away goal at the Stade Gerland.

Ewerthon put the German side in front mid-way through the second half, but Lille were able to equalise through Salaheddine Bassir with 17 minutes to go.
