Kevin Thomson Profile

 

Kevin had three seperate spells at the Club as a player, intially making his first team breakthrough as a teenager as part of Bobby Williamson's youthful side in the 2003/04 campaign, helping Hibernian reach the League Cup Final that season, including scoring a goal against Celtic in the run up to the final.

Despite suffering a serious cruciate ligament injury which kept him out of action for almost a year, Thomson returned to become a key figure for Hibernian in the campaign, captaining and dominating midfields in Scotland alongside Scott Brown, before he left to join Rangers in January 2007.

He would spend three years at Ibrox, before leaving to join Middlesbrough in 2010. An injury hit spell at the Riverside under Gordon Strachan saw him leave the club in 2013, re-joining at Easter Road under Pat Fenlon, playing for free until the end of the 2012/13 season. He then signed a one-year deal that summer, before being released at the end of the 2013/14 season, in which the Club were relegated.

Thomson moved north to Dundee and spent eighteen months at Dens Park, captaining the side, before returning to Leith again to see out the rest of the 2015/16 campaign. His final spell with the greens saw him help the Club to win the Scottish Cup, playing a crucial role in both Edinburgh Derbies in the Fifth Round of the competition.
