WATCH: Ireland’s Jonathan Douglas laughs off this funny video of himself ‘playing like your dad’

Paul Moore

Absolutely love this. Jonathan Douglas is a very sound man.

Ipswich Town had a bad day at the office yesterday as they lost 3-0 to Newcastle United at St. James’ Park, but despite the defeat, Irish midfielder Jonathan Douglas may have just won himself a few new admirers.

The former Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United and Brentford man played the whole 90 minute against Rafa Benitez’s side and he had a fairly busy game for Mick McCarthy’s men.

Being that we’re living in a world were everyone has a camera phone, a Twitter user by the name of Rachel C captured a moment where the Monaghan midfielder – in her own words – “looked like someone’s dad having a cameo”. Granted, he was probably wrecked from a tiring afternoon of work, but when this clip is viewed in isolation, it is pretty funny.

Take a look.

In what’s a fine example of the type of man that Douglas is, he saw the funny side of  Rachel’s video and responded to her online.

Take a look at how he shows a genuine touch of class.


Rachel also saw the funny side of the fact that her clip has gone viral. She wasn’t the only one thoug because a former Newcastle United player also shared the clip.

Jonathan Douglas, we salute you.
