Career

Celtic

Douglas, formerly of Dundee, joined Celtic in 2000 and went on to gain over 100 appearances for the club, and was a key part of the team that reached the 2003 UEFA Cup Final. He was also considered a key player in Celtic's SPL domestic title wins in 2000-01 and 2001-02.

However, during the 2004-05 seasons he faced stiff competition from youngster David Marshall and Magnus Hedman. At the end of the season, Douglas was told by Celtic's then manager, Martin O'Neill, that he would not be first choice for next season. Douglas decided that he wanted to test himself in England, rather than sit on the bench, and joined Leicester City on a free transfer.

Leicester City

His future at the Walkers Stadium was under threat after being replaced late in the 2005-06 season by Paul Henderson and promising performances by former youth academy goalkeeper Conrad Logan. Therefore, on 7 June 2007, Douglas was placed on the transfer list alongside Mark de Vries and Alan Maybury.[1] Douglas was handed a trial spell at Motherwell on 21 August,[2] but was unable to agree a deal with the club.[3]

On 14 September, Douglas joined Millwall on an emergency 4 week loan,[4] making his debut in a 2-1 defeat to Walsall on 15 September.[5] On 23 October, he joined Wycombe Wanderers on a 3 month loan deal, making three appearances.[6]

On 14 March 2008, Douglas joined Plymouth Argyle on a week's emergency loan as cover for the suspended Luke McCormick,[7] making his only appearance in a 2-1 away win over Bristol City on 15 March 2008.[8] On 15 May, he was released by Leicester as his contract was close to expiring and later joined former club Dundee on a free transfer. [9]

Dundee

Douglas joined Dundee F.C for the second time of his career in 2008 as one of ex-managers, Alex Rae's first signings. He started every single game of the 2008/09 season and played the full 90 minutes of every game, except from the last game of season when Ludovic Roy came on as a farewell substitution.

International

Douglas was a regular for Scotland from 2002. However, after a 6-0 loss to Holland in Amsterdam, in a 2003 playoff for qualification to Euro 2004, Douglas lost his position as first team goalkeeper.

It was a night from which his Scotland career never really recovered and he played just once more under Berti Vogts, against Wales, in a 4-0 defeat. He was recalled to the Scotland squad in 2005 under manager Walter Smith where he played against Italy in a 2006 World Cup qualifier, but was taken off injured in the 38th minute.

His last appearance for Scotland was a friendly match in August 2005, where he came on as a second half substitute in a 2-2 draw against Austria.[10]
