If you get a freebie seat in the directors box and we score a goal, the least you can do is stand up and clap. Fud.

Aye and did you notice who was sitting beside him, none other than the leader of Glasgow Catholic Council and Gay Boy Gordon Matheson, at least he got up and clapped when we scored, Maybe someone put a hot dog under his seat.

I think he is actually a Rangers man. Probably just a lazy bastard too however.

He's narrated quite a few Rangers videos/DVD's over the years has Dougie, he could've shown a wee bit of emotion.:confused:

100% correct. DD is a regular in the Blue Room and I'm sure he was very happy we scored.

I repaired his telly a few years ago and it was in his office which was on the top floor of his house. He had loads of books, programmes, videos, dvd's in the office of all teams but the vast majority was Rangers stuff.

DD has been a professional TV man for more years than most of us can remember. I did not want him to stand up and block my view, I wanted to see Walter - he would have known that.

about 15 years ago DD was sitting near me,when Rangers scored against the scum his face was blank but he was giving it the fist dig. out of camera shot.It's called working for the BBC

He knew he was on camera and didn't want to get up and let everyone see his stauner.

I was told Gordon Matheson is a Bluenose. ;)

I have also heard he is a Bluenose ,he will be flung out of the council for going to Ibrox

DD is cool.

I remember an away game at St Mirren we were all singing Dougie Dougie give us the sash and he was waving and giving us the thumbs up.

Good bear end of.

He's a Clyde man but is probably more Rangers than Celtic.

Dougie Donnelly is as big a bluenose as anyone, but for some reason which none of us can understand :roll:, you have got to be careful when being a bluenose and working in the media in Scotland. He got the wrath of McNee for years for saying that he did not want the rep of ireland to even win a corner during the 1994 World Cup :D.

Definitely a clyde man but if push came to shove he would always prefer us over them.

Met him years ago when he was out drinking with McCoist and Durie.

He's often at Euro games.

Guest at Ibrox for good open Champs League match with Valencia .My allocated seat in Directors Box seems to have aroused some interest!

His Missus looks better in the flesh, I hope. http://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1097147409/dougiedonnelly.jpg

Just to clarify . . .

He's Clyde, and his dad was Third Lanark.

Is that you speaking in hoolie-speak? :eek:

I've no doubt he is a Clyde fan.

But I'm not sure he has made many appearances as a guest at Celtic Park, so perhaps he has good taste in friends. :)

He was also in the directors box for the 3-0 game against the vermin at Ibrox a couple of seasons back.

A big game hunter.

But much missed at The Crucible.

Can't believe he didn't play Claudius to Simm's Hamlet. :(

I believe he is quite friendly with Alex McLeish.

I've met him a couple of times and he really is a confirmed neutral.

I believe he would have been wanting Rangers to win, but I don't see how he deserved a prime seat and the least he could have done as cheer after the unwarranted hospitality.

Doesn't want to upset certain individuals within the BBC is the probable reason why there's no outward sign of celebration. That's the way it is in modern day Scotland i'm afraid.

Was there not some footage I recall a few years back behind the scenes at the snooker (can't remember the tournament) of him giving it the big YES!!!! watching the 3-2 OF win at Ibrox 2002 during an interval ??

:agree:


I think he'd got the wee text "you're on camera, don't jump up if we score"

My old man was asking me about DD last night after seeing him on Premier Sports. He had always assumed he was a Bluenose. I was less certain, mainly due to his supposed indifference (may be just a pro) to our achievements.

Counter this with Jim White who as much a pro as he is, just can't stop a big cheesy grin when a good news story about the Gers is on his monitor.

Can anyone vouch for Dougie with any degree of certainty?

Grew up across the road from DD in Rutherglen.

He's a Rangers man but members of his family and his best friend were Clyde fans. He has a strong link with them.

Think you will find he is well trained now in not getting caught by camera's.

Had a bad feeling last night, when it went back to dougie in the studio at half time. He seems to be a bit of a jinx when Scottish teams especially Scotland are playing important matches. Usually says, so far so good at half time then after a glorious defeat, it's back to dougie at full time with his face tripping him. It has happened so many times. :(

Thanks for that Kenny. Sounds like 1-0 to the old man then. I'm not having a good week:(

I've heard Jim White - on air - deny that he's a Rangers fan three times over the years.

I've also seen him host the RST Annual Dinner, and he certainly looked like a Rangers fan that night.

As for Dougie, he really is a Clyde man(remember him on television celebrating Clyde beating Celtic), and his old man was Third Lanark.

I'm sure he'll feel more at home at Ibrox than Parkhead.

He definitely favors us, how do you think it would look if jumped about when we scored - would find it's way to YouTube.
Sad but true.
