Player Profile

Belfast-born Dougan started his footballing career in his homeland before Portsmouth brought him over to England and then Blackburn Rovers signed him up. With Rovers, Dougan netted twice in an FA Cup semi-final success but then submitted a transfer request on the morning of the final.

It was a sign of things to come, with the player establishing a bit of a controversial character midway through his career. Many people believed his controversial character was to the detriment of his footballing abilities - which were of a very good standard.

It looked as though his career had hit the buffers somewhat when he left a spell at Aston Villa for Peterborough United, down the leagues. But perhaps the drop in divisions helped Dougan get a sense of perspective, and it was with City that he got a return to the top flight, taking a pay cut in the process.

He formed a threatening attacking partnership alongside Jackie Sinclair in the City attack and quickly made a positive impression on the City faithful, and manager Matt Gillies, who forked out £25,000 for his services. It proved to be a good buy, with Dougan netting 41 goals in 76 appearances.

He went on to play for Wolves and finished his playing career with 222 league goals and 43 caps for Northern Ireland. After his career, he was chairman of the PFA and enjoyed a career as a pundit before being part of a consortium that helped save Wolves from the financial mire.
