“I actually feel sorry for DDV as I have been there, he’ll get stick and it’s the loneliest place,” Rab Douglas

RAB DOUGLAS has posted a few follow up tweets in response to an article published this morning on The Celtic Star that quoted his tweet concerning the Dorus De Vries comments about the knuckle ball. Here is the original tweet from the former Celtic keeper.

After this was mentioned this morning on The Celtic Star HERE, Rab posted two follow up tweets and as he’d like to clear up what he meant we’re happy to re-produce them below.

Big Rab states: “Easy for papers to lift your comments from twitter now . I actually feel sorry for DDV as I have been there . He will get stick and it’s the loneliest place . My tweet was meant I’ve never heard the term knuckle ball. Lazy online journalism trying to twist things.”

And continued by tweeting:

“Just to clarify I would never criticise a fellow goalkeeper. Not in my nature, anyone who knows me well enough will agree. All it takes is a split second to go from hero to zero.

“I’ve made enough mistakes in my career and hope DDV comes back stronger.”

We’d be happy to discuss this further with Rab on The Celtic Star Podcast, A Celtic State of Mind if he fancies coming on. Current guest on the podcast is Frank McAvennie and you can listen using the link below.
