Leeds United left-back Barry Douglas moved to Blackburn Rovers on loan this season but left a lot of their fans wishing he hadn’t after his display on Wednesday night. 

Blackburn lost 1-0 to Bristol City at Ashton Gate and plenty of away fans made their feelings clear on Twitter after the game.

The main issue they’re taking with Douglas is his poor set pieces – especially from corners. One fan said, “I thought he was supposed to have a wand of a left foot?”

In the seven Championship games that he’s played this season, he’s only chipped in with one assist and the result on Wednesday leaves Blackburn in 10th and looking a long way from promotion hopefuls.

Leeds fans were thrilled when Douglas arrived at the club after a fizzing season with Wolves.

However, something happened after the move and his attacking output dropped through the floor.

Douglas scored five goals and added 15 assists in his 42 Wolves games. In the season Wolves got promoted he notched up 14 assists. That dropped to zero goals and five assists in 44 games for Leeds.

And it looks like the pattern is continuing for Douglas at his new club.

One fan said that he “came with a big reputation but he’s been absolutely dire to be honest.”

Douglas is out of contract at the end of the season and playing for a move. He’s a popular figure at Leeds and we hope he can re-find the form that made him one of the most feared full-backs in the Championship.

Meanwhile, here are the rest of the reactions to his display last night…
