‘What a player’, ‘phenomenal’: Some Rangers fans react to club’s Twitter post

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have paid tribute to Alan Hutton on Twitter after the Ibrox cult hero announced his retirement from professional football.

The 35-year-old began his career at Rangers, coming through the ranks at Ibrox before making his debut in 2002.

During his time at the Scottish Premiership club, Hutton made 91 competitive appearances (Transfermarkt) and won the league title in 2005.

The full-back then made the switch to Tottenham Hotspur in 2008 for £9million, which remains Rangers’ record fee received (BBC Sport).

During his time at Spurs, Hutton won the English League Cup, and in 2011 he made the move to Aston Villa, where he made upwards of 200 competitive appearances (Transfermarkt) and helped them get back into the Premier League last season.

Hutton, who also enjoyed several loan spells throughout his career, made 50 appearances for the Scotland national team and was part of the side which clinched a historic 1-0 win over France in Paris.

Rangers paid tribute to Hutton with a post on their Twitter feed and some Bears joined in with kind comments:
