Lanarkshire Live Sport reports that former Rangers midfielder Kyle Hutton is set to sign for East Kilbride FC.

The 29-year-old most recently made 117 appearances across three years at SPFL League One club Dumbarton, but it’s suggested he will now drop down the leagues.

Hutton’s signing is expected to be confirmed next week and would be the latest in an impressive list of new arrivals at the ambitious Lowland League club.

Earlier this summer, Kilby brought in former Northern Ireland international Paul Paton, before announcing the capture of experienced midfielder Chris Erskine, who turned out 25 times for top-flight Livingston last season.

Hutton made his Gers debut in August 2010 against Kilmarnock and remained with the club in the lower leagues of Scottish football, making a total of 70 appearances in Light Blue.

However, the former Scotland youth international suffered a broken leg during the 2013/14 season and was released in 2015.

Since leaving the Gers, Hutton has gone on to represent St Mirren, Airdrieonians and Dumbarton, but now it seems he’s opting to drop out of the SPFL to become a part of a big project at EK.
