Kevin Paul McNaughton was born in Dundee, Scotland, in 1982.

He came through the ranks at Aberdeen, making his debut at 18. He remained at the club until 2006, when he joined Cardiff City on a free transfer.

He became a fan's favourite at the club, captaining the side and being a key member of several promotion efforts, mainly under the stewardship of Dave Jones. He made a total of 254 appearances for the club between 2006 and 2014, scoring twice.

McNaughton finally moved to a big club in September 2013, when he joined Bolton Wanderers, making his debut in a 0-0 draw away to Blackpool. He would also go on to score in the 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic in the December of 2013, this being his first goal in the League since scoring for Cardiff against Barnsley in May 2008.

He went back to Cardiff at the end of the season, but rejoined Bolton the year after though this was a much less successful spell, mainly due to injury.

His career took a massive nosedive when he joined local hillbilly outfit Wigan Athletic in August 2015 on a one-year deal.

A full international, he made his debut against Nigeria under Berti Vogts in April 2002.
