Leeds United star Barry Douglas admits he was a Rangers fan growing up
Leeds United defender Barry Douglas has told Talking Shutt’s Youtube channel that he supported Rangers during his childhood but did admit that when you begin playing for three points, your allegiance begins to change.
Douglas, 30, joined Leeds in 2018 for £3million (Sky Sports) but has failed to reach the heights that saw him shine for Wolverhampton Wanderers during the 2017-18 campaign. During his 42 outings that season, Douglas laid on 15 assists.
He joined Leeds despite promotion at the end of the 2017-18 season, and has played just 39 times for the Whites under Marcelo Bielsa since. This season, Douglas has been in and out of the side, playing only 13 times.
Douglas gave an interview to Leeds-based podcast and Youtube channel Talking Shutt, and he discussed living five minutes from Ibrox as a child and supporting the Gers as he grew up.
“I grew up in Pollok which is literally five minutes from Ibrox so my family were predominantly Rangers fans. So I grew up being a Rangers fan. But once you start playing, and breaking into the senior ranks, it changes a bit,” Douglas said.
With the former Wolves ace only playing 13 times this season, he will surely be made flexible this summer and that should place Rangers on red alert.
