Ex-Rangers star joins sixth-tier side just a week after club statement revealing money troubles | The Sun

KYLE HUTTON once mixed it with the likes of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs in the Champions League.

And he's still going strong at the age of 32, even if he's now dropped down the divisions.

The midfielder has a new club today after agreeing a loan deal from West of Scotland Premier Division side Pollok.

He's moved to another club in the division in the form of last year's Scottish Cup giant killers Darvel.

After the huge highs of the epic cup win over Aberdeen, Darvel released a statement recently to explain that they would be making a deficit and were cutting cloths accordingly.

But they clearly feel that the loan signing of Hutton can be an important step within their budget.

They wrote in a statement: "We can confirm that we have signed midfielder Kyle Hutton on loan from @pollokfc for the remainder of the 23/24 season.

"Kyle brings a wealth of experience playing at a high level and we can’t wait to see him show what he can do in a Darvel shirt this campaign."

Hutton broke into the Gers first team as a teenager under Walter Smith,making his debut that August against Kilmarnock and helping the Ibrox club win the league title and League Cup.

He got a surprise start in the Champions League against Manchester United that season, and stuck around when Rangers dropped down the divisions.

He made 72 appearances in total before he was released in 2015 and has since played for the likes of Queen of the South, St Mirren, Dumbarton, East Kilbride and Cowdenbeath.

After a year at Forfar, he headed down the divisions again to sign for sixth tier club Pollok before being made available for transfer.

Outwith of football, Hutton these days works for Siemens Mobility, a company that aims to transform rail travel in Scotland.

And explaining his role, he told Siemens Mobility on LinkedIn: "I'm a site coordinator at Siemens.

"I'll sort of send out reports for works that have been done that night and make sure all of the guys got off site safely."

A Darvel statement had hinted at major changes ahead, reading: "Over the coming months there will be a degree of change within the current playing squad which is still to be decided jointly between Club/Management Team, so we ask that fans are supportive of the proposed measures, for better days ahead."
