Barry Douglas to miss rest of Leeds’ promotion push

Leeds defender Barry Douglas has been ruled out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage.

The 29-year-old sustained the injury during the Whites’ 3-2 Championship victory over Millwall on Saturday.

He managed to see out the game but scans have revealed that he ruptured a medial ligament, ruling him out for between two and three months.

The injury means Douglas, who has made 27 appearances during his first season for Leeds, will play no further part in the club’s push for promotion to the Premier League.

He joined Leeds from Wolves last summer having previously played for Queen’s Park, Dundee United, Lech Poznan and Konyaspor, while he has been capped once by Scotland.
