Career[edit]

Heart of Midlothian[edit]

Mullen joined the Heart of Midlothian youth academy aged 12.[3] He progressed to the under-19 squad[4] and was promoted to the first team on 10 December 2011, when he was an unused substitute in the match against Celtic.[5] Mullen made his first team debut on 7 January 2012, in a Scottish Cup tie against Auchinleck Talbot;[6] he took a penalty kick that was saved by the Auchinleck goalkeeper in the first half.[7] Hearts manager Paulo Sergio described Mullen as his man of the match.[8] His next appearance came the following season on 26 January 2013,[2] playing from the start in a 2012–13 Scottish League Cup semi-final win against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.[9] His season was ended prematurely[10] as he suffered a fractured foot during an Edinburgh derby on 10 March,[11] ruling him out of the 2013 Scottish League Cup Final.[12] Mullen left the club at the end of the season after he was advised that he would not be offered a new contract.[13]

Hibernian[edit]

Mullen signed a one-year contract with Hibernian, the Edinburgh derby rivals of Hearts, in June 2013.[14] He then went on to score a free kick in his first game, a friendly against Gibraltar.[15] Mullen failed to hold down a regular place in the Hibs first team, making just four appearances, with the last coming on 17 August and was allowed to leave the club in January 2014.[16]

Raith Rovers[edit]

On 10 January 2014,[17] Mullen signed a contract with Scottish Championship side Raith Rovers until the end of the 2013–14 season.[18] He made his debut the following day, playing from the start in a 0–0 draw against Greenock Morton at Cappielow.[19]

East Fife[edit]

Mullen signed a one-year contract with East Fife in June 2014.
