Aston Villa fullback Alan Hutton hopes for a fresh chance with the summer market now shut.

One rumour claimed Hutton was set for a sensational return to first club Rangers. But the defender revealed there was absolutely no truth in that.

He told the Scottish Sun: "It was funny, all my mates and uncles were texting me, asking me if it was true.

"I think it was one of those rumours that flies around at that time of the year.

"People maybe saw I wasn't playing at Villa, put two and two together and word spread that I was on my way back to Rangers.

"But as far as I know there was absolutely nothing in that at all."
