He was linked with moves across Europe following his Leeds United departure, but Lech Poznan have stated Douglas could have returned home to Scotland: “The 31-year-old had a number of offers from English and Scottish clubs, but decided to continue his career in Poland.

 

“Barry returns to a well-known place, as well as to coach Maciej Skorży, with whom he cooperated in 2015, when Kolejorz won the title of Polish champion and competed in European cups, advancing to the group stage of the Europa League.”
