Wolves reveal positive news regarding important player

Published

on

Wolves’ left wing-back Barry Douglas was today called up to the Scotland squad as he looks to win his first cap for his country.

The 28-year old has been a real bargain signing for the league leaders since joining from Turkish side Konyaspor in the summer.

The wing-back role that Nuno Espirito Santo asks Douglas to play has brought out the best in him, with the former Dundee United man becoming a key part of the Wolves team this season.

One standout aspect of his game is his ability on the ball from set-plays. Douglas has weighed in with 11 assists this season, which is a tally that only fellow Scotsman Robert Snodgrass can better in the Championship.

He has now been rewarded for that form with a call up to the Scotland squad for friendlies against Costa Rica and Hungary later this month.

Those games will be the first under returning boss Alex McLeish who has another five uncapped players in his squad alongside Douglas, including Manchester United’s Scott McTominay.

The Verdict

This is thoroughly deserved for Douglas and he is surely going to be extremely proud if he does get to play for his country.

The Wolves man is unfortunate that he is competing with Liverpool’s Andy Robertson and Celtic’s Kieran Tierney for a left-back spot, who are arguably Scotland’s best two players.

Nevertheless, he is going to get the chance to impress when he joins up with the squad in a few weeks and needs to maintain the form he has shown for his club this season.
