The charismatic Scot signed for the Club in the summer of 2006, going on to make 282 City appearances prior to his final one, at Southampton, in a 1-0 Barclays Premier League victory.
He started for Cardiff City in the 2008 F.A. Cup semi-final and final, the 2010 Play-Off Final and the 2012 League Cup Final – and was a key part of the side that clinched promotion to the Barclays Premier League in 2013.
‘Super Kev’ spent time on loan at Bolton Wanderers for the first part of the 2013/14 campaign, though returned heroically in the final months as City battled against the drop. Kevin went back to Bolton for a second time at the start of this season, this time on a season-long deal, though injury at the turn of the year brought his personal campaign to a premature end.
All of us at Cardiff City would like to express our sincere thanks and respect to Kevin for his immense contribution to our Football Club.
We’d like to wish Kevin, Danny and Nicky the very best of luck for their futures, adding additional thanks and gratitude to Danny for his two playing spells with the Bluebirds and his short caretaker-managerial stint in conjunction with Scott Young, prior to the appointment of Russell Slade.
