Former Scottish international Alan Hutton has announced his retirement from football.
Hotton started his career at Rangers before moving to England representing five clubs including Tottenham Hotspur, Sunderland, Aston Villla, Nottingham Forest and Bolton Wanderas respectively.
The 35 year old also won 50 Scotland caps between 2007 and 2016.
“I have come to the conclusion that I am going to retire from football,” Hutton told talkSPORT .
“Obviously, it has been a really difficult decision that I’ve had to make. I’ve taken my time and thought about it a lot.
“It’s been difficult, but I think for me moving forward it is the right thing. I could have played on, I had opportunities to play on, but nothing that really worked out for me and my family, if I am honest.
“It’s a sad moment for myself, but I think it is the right one overall. It has been such a big part of my life since I was six or seven. It has been a long journey, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it.
“I’ve had some amazing moments, I’ve had some not so good moments, but it has given me everything I’ve got, and I am really thankful for that.”
Hutton won the Scottish Premier league with Ranger in 2015 season and also the league cup with Spurs in 2018.
