Kyle Hutton (born 5 February 1991) is a professional Scottish association footballer who plays as a midfielder for Airdrieonians, on loan from St Mirren. He has previously played for Rangers, Partick Thistle, Dunfermline Athletic and Queen of the South.

Career[edit]

Rangers[edit]

Hutton made his professional debut for Rangers in the opening Scottish Premier League match of the season against Kilmarnock on 14 August 2010, coming on for James Beattie.[1] He made his first start against Dunfermline Athletic on 21 September 2010. He picked up his first senior honour after coming on as an 82nd-minute substitute for Rangers in a 2–1 extra-time victory over Celtic in the 2011 Scottish League Cup Final.[2] A fortnight before, Hutton had signed a new contract with Rangers, keeping him there until 2014.[3]

In October 2012, after returning from loan spells with Partick Thistle and Dunfermline Athletic, Hutton hoped his performances could see him feature more regularly for the first team.[4] Ahead of the 2012–13 season Hutton agreed to transfer to Charles Green's new club saying, 'For me, it is in my best interests to stay where I am and to try to establish myself in the side next season. I feel I've got a lot more to give the club.'[5] After starting in Rangers' first game against Brechin city in late July, Hutton wouldn't feature again till late September, coming on as a substitute in the League Cup against Motherwell for the injured Francisco Sandaza. His performance earned many plaudits, with Hutton saying afterwards he was 'in the dark' over why he hadn't featured more.[6] In November 2013, Hutton suffered a broken leg, ruling him out of action on a long-term basis.[7]

At the end of the 2014–15 season, Hutton was one of eleven players released by Rangers.[8]

Partick Thistle (loan)[edit]

With first team chances limited at Rangers, Hutton agreed to move to Sheffield United on a season long loan at the end of the summer transfer window in 2012,[9] but the deal subsequently fell through as the paperwork was not completed before the deadline.[10] However, Hutton was eligible to leave on loan after the transfer window shut to a team in Scotland outwith the SPL and subsequently joined Partick Thistle on a three-month loan deal on 9 September 2011.[11]

Dunfermline (loan)[edit]

On the last day of the January 2012 transfer window, Hutton joined Dunfermline Athletic on loan until the end of the season.[12] During his time on loan there was much speculation about Rangers possibly being forced to sell players with Hutton saying, “If Rangers need to sell players then it might give younger lads like myself an opportunity because there are definitely kids there who can do a job.”[13] Hutton went on to play nine games for Dunfermline Athletic but couldn't help save them from relegation.

Queen of the South[edit]

On 13 August 2015, Hutton joined Queen of the South, signing a contract until January 2016.[14] Hutton debuted for the Doonhamers on 30 August 2015, appearing as a second-half substitute in a 5–1 defeat at home to his former club Rangers.[15] On 8 January 2016, Hutton signed an extension to his current contract, taking him through to the end of the season.[16]

St Mirren[edit]

On 10 May 2016, Hutton signed a two-year contract with St Mirren, after leaving Queen of the South.[17]

Airdrieonians (loan)[edit]

On 29 November 2016, Hutton moved to Scottish League One side Airdrieonians on an emergency loan deal.[18] On 20 January 2017, the loan was extended until the end of the season.[19]

Personal life[edit]

On 20 September 2010, Hutton and fellow Rangers youth player Kal Naismith were abducted by two men in Edinburgh and driven around the city before being dumped in the city's Niddrie area. The men then mugged the players and stole the car. The car was later recovered and the men were both convicted.[21]
