Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Douglas for the UEFA Cup Second Round 2nd Leg against Blackburn Rovers, played at Ewood Park on 14th November 2002. The former Livingston man had kept a superb clean sheet in Glasgow a fortnight earlier in Celtic's 1-0 win over Graeme Souness' side and he was at his best again in Lancashire for this one. The Bhoys ran out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Henrik Larsson and former Rover Chris Sutton with Douglas saving every shot he faced much to the delight of the traveling Hoops crowd. The keeper went on to play ever minute of Celtic's epic European journey beating Celta Vigo, Stuttgart, Liverpool and Boavista en route to a heart breaking final in Seville against Porto. This was his second season in Glasgow after joining from Dundee and he went on to spend another two years with The Bhoys before joining Leicester City in 2005. He won 3 SPL titles and 3 Scottish Cups whilst at Celtic Park and later had a spell with Forfar Athletic as well as a return to Dundee.
