Pen Pic

Veteran full-back Clint Hill began his career over a decade ago with Tranmere Rovers and early success was somewhat tainted for the Liverpudlian.

Tranmere Rovers reached the League Cup final but Hill was dismissed as the Whites lost out to Leicester City at the final hurdle.

A £250,000 move to Oldham Athletic was soured when Hill broke his leg and was forced out of the majority of the 2002-03 season, but a move to Stoke City helped reignite the defender's career.

Voted player of the year in 2004-05 Hill featured predominantly at the heart of defence, but left for Crystal Palace after injuries prevented him from holding down a regular place at the Britannia Stadium.

Neil Warnock helped reinvigorate the no-nonsense defender as he helped the Eagles reach the playoffs, and also save them from relegation in an eventful spell.

He followed Warnock to Loftus Road in July 2010, and has featured primarily at full-back for the West London side.

Hill was instrumental in Rangers rise into the Premier League in 2011, playing regularly at left-back despite several injury complaints.

Life in the top flight was initially tough for Clint, sent off on the opening day and watching as Armand Traoré came in and took his place. He was loaned out to Nottingham Forest and appeared to be on his way out of QPR.

An injury to Traoré saw Hill return early and mark one of the most remarkable comebacks from a player in recent times. He starred at the heart of defence in Rangers' tough run in under Mark Hughes, leading him to be named Player of the Year.

He received back to back Player of the Year awards in 2013 - that despite Rangers' relegation back to the Championship.
