Rangers fullback Hutton laughs off Cafu comparison

Rangers fullback Alan Hutton has laughed off comparisons with AC Milan's former Brazil captain Cafu.

The youngster has been outstanding this season and told the Sunday Mail: "Teams are now setting up to stop me and against Motherwell in the CIS Cup I had someone following me everywhere.

"Getting forward is a big part of my game and if other sides see that as a threat they've every right to try to stop it. It's a big compliment and shows I'm doing well. I read the piece comparing me to Cafu and just laughed it off.

"To be mentioned in the same breath as someone of his stature is just unbelievable.

"My mates have given me a bit of stick about it. The boys were determined to knock me back down to earth as well, telling me not to believe the hype and winding me up. So it has been a good laugh.

"I've read about other clubs being interested but it won't change me. I've just signed a new contract at Ibrox for five years and I'm enjoying my football.

"The only thing I'm interested in is doing my best for Rangers and Scotland."
