Early lifeEdit

Barry Douglas was born in Glasgow on 4 September 1989.

CareerEdit

Douglas played for Livingston youth teams, but was released at the age of sixteen because he was considered "too small". He spent a year out of football before joining Queen's Park, becoming part of their first team squad in 2008. Douglas made his senior debut in August 2008, in a Scottish Second Division match against Stranraer. He went on to become a first team regular for Queen's Park, playing for the amateur club while also working as a refrigeration engineer.[2] His performances saw him linked with a number of professional clubs, despite Queen's being relegated to the Third Division in 2009. Douglas continued to impress at the lower level, scoring nine goals from his full back position during the 2009–10 season. He finished the season as Queen's Park top scorer.

On 20 June 2010 he signed professionally with Dundee United. His debut for his new club came in August of that year, as a substitute against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the SPL. On 28 May 2013 he signed a two-year deal with Polish club Lech Poznań.[3]

Douglas signed for Turkish Süper Lig team Konyaspor in January 2016. He played his first league match against Galatasaray on 6 February 2016.[4]

Wolverhampton WanderersEdit

On 1 July 2017, he signed for English Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee on a two-year deal with a year's option in the club's favour.[5] He made his debut for the club on 5 August 2017 in a 1-0 win against Middlesbrough at Molineux.[6] He scored his first goal a week later, in a 2-0 win away against Derby County.[7]
