He joined Livingston on a one-month loan during the 2006–07 season, and spent the 2008–09 season on loan at St. Mirren. Cuthbert joined Swindon Town in 2009, he left the club two seasons later to join Leyton Orient.

Cuthbert has represented Scotland at U19, U20, U21 and B level.

Club career[edit]

Celtic[edit]

Cuthbert came through the ranks at Celtic and captained the Under-19's and Reserve teams.[2] In the 2007/08 season, Cuthbert was in the substitute bench, un-used, in an Old Firm derby as Celtic lost 3–0[3]

Livingston (loan)[edit]

He had a one-month loan spell at Scottish First Division club Livingston during the 2006–07 season, making four appearances and scoring once.[2] On 30 December 2006, Cuthbert scored his first professional career goal with a header in a 3–1 loss against Airdrie United[4]

St. Mirren (loan)[edit]

Cuthbert joined St. Mirren in August 2008 on a season-long loan[5] He made his debut against Kilmarnock at Love Street on 16 August.[6] He made a total of 28 appearances before returning to Celtic.[2] Since leaving St. Mirren, Cuthbert says he's desire to join the club again in his second loan spell[7]

Swindon Town[edit]

On 13 July 2009, it was announced that he had signed for English club Swindon Town,[2] despite interest from his former club St Mirren. Cuthbert made his debut for Swindon on the opening day of the season against Gillingham, but was left out for four games until Swindon faced Wolves in the League Cup, and thereafter held down a regular place in the starting squad. Cuthbert scored his first goal for Swindon on 29 August, scoring the first goal in a 2–1 win against Southend United.[8] On 10 October 2009, Cuthbert scored his second goal for Swindon in a 1–1 draw against Millwall[9] and three-month later on 16 January 2010, Cuthbert scored his third goal in a 3–1 win over Gillingham.[10] Towards the end of the season, Swindon Town had intentions to go up to the Championship but with no wins in the last six games the club finished in fifth place, resulting in a place in the play-offs. In May 2010, Cuthbert said his move to Swindon was the best career move he ever had and also say that playing in the Wembley Stadium was a dream come true[11] However, Millwall would beat Swindon 1–0, preventing Swindon heading to the Championship, therefore staying in League One. Though Swindon lost, Cuthbert believed the club might be promoted the next season[12]

The following season, Cuthbert found his second season at Swindon to be a complete disaster over change of managements, which resulted the club been relegated to League Two. At the start of the season, on 3 August 2010, Cuthbert was named Swindon Town club vice-captain for the 2010–11 season, who will deputise for Jonathan Douglas, who was named as captain for Swindon Town.[13] Several weeks since receiving the captaincy, Cuthbert scored his first goal in a 2–1 loss against MK Dons on 28 August 2010.[14] Six month later on 12 February 2011, Cuthbert scored his second goal of the season in a 2–1 loss against Colchester United. In March 2011, Cuthbert suffered a fractured cheekbone sustained in the 1–1 draw with Dagenham & Redbridge, but soon he was given all clear, meaning he didn't need surgery[15] and would play until the end of the season After Swindon relegation, Cuthbert say he took the blame over the mistakes, but believes the club will bounce back.[16] With his contract expired in the summer, Cuthbert said he wanted to stay at Swindon Town and would be "delighted" to stay[17]

Leyton Orient[edit]

On 3 June 2011, Cuthbert signed a two-year deal with League One Leyton Orient.[18] On the opening game of the season, Cuthbert made his debut, playing as a centre back, in a 1–0 loss against Walsall.[19] On 13 September 2011, Cuthbert received a straight card in a 3–1 loss against Bournemouth and had to miss three games[20] Cuthbert scored his first Orient goal on 8 October 2011, helping the O's to a 3–2 win at Scunthorpe.[21] After the match, Russell Slade say Cuthbert's goal made the game 'safe' with a win.[22] At the end of October, Cuthbert was nominated for Player of the Month, due to forming part of a defence which produced two clean sheets, while he also scored[23] but lost to Jordan Rhodes. On 31 March 2012, in a 2–0 defeat against Charlton Athletic, Cuthbert soon suffered an hamstring,[24] causing him to miss the rest of the season[25] Despite his injury, Cuthbert was named Leyton Orient's Player of the Year for the 2011/12 season.[26] Shortly receiving it, Cuthbert say winning the player of the year was his proudest moment.[27]

Ahead of a new season, Cuthbert made a recovery from his injury ahead of his first appearance of the season in a friendly match[28] Cuthbert played his first game, since being injured and making a start before coming off in second half, in a 1–0 loss against Ebbsfleet United.[29] After the match, Slade praised the club's defence and also praised Cuthbert.[30] The following month, with two appearance at the beginning of the season, Cuthbert, again, suffered an hamstring injury[31] and made his recovery when he played the whole game in a 3–0 loss against Tottenham Hotspur reserves[32] He then resumed his first team status, playing in right-back and centre back at the defence. In the semi-final of the southern section against Yeovil Town, Cuthbert provided a winning assist for Dave Mooney in a 1–0 win, to send the club through the final of the southern section. In a 0–0 draw against Preston, Cuthbert soon suffered a fractured metatarsal, which cause him to miss for the rest of the season.[33] Shortly after the end of the season, Cuthbert signed a new two-year contract with the club.[34]

International career[edit]

Cuthbert was captain of the Scotland under-19 team that reached the final of the UEFA under-19 Championships in 2006 and the Scotland under-20 team that played at 2007 Under-20 World Cup in Canada. He represented the Scotland B side in May 2009.[35]
