Rab Douglas joined Celtic in 2000 and played over 100 times under Martin O’Neill and was part of the famous Uefa Cup team who brought us on that wonderful road to Seville. He is currently coaching at Arbroath.
Rab joined me on the Celtic Soul Podcast yesterday to chat about his football career which was a slow burner. Rab played amateur football before working his way up through the football leagues with Meadowbank Thistle/ Livingston and Dundee before getting the big move to Celtic, during that time he would pocket six medals, play in a European final and become a regular Scottish international.
Before chatting about his career, I got his opinion on the weekends Celtic game and his old teammate Neil Lennon and we also looked ahead to AC Milan.
I singled out Valencia away as one of Rab’s finest moments between the sticks for Celtic but he thinks his performance at Anfield was his finest 90 minutes and remembers when big John scored the second goal he turned around and saw a lone hooped jersey in the Kop and celebrated with him while his team-mates were down the other end of the pitch celebrating as we were. I was in the Centenary stand that night among the Liverpool fans but when the final whistle sounded, I realized I wasn’t alone.
Rab played at Celtic in a golden era when we competed with the best in Europe on a regular basis click the link below to hear the full interview.
