However, he has now signed for the Hammers after a brief period on trial and will link up with their Under-23s.

He has said: “I’m really happy to be here, I’ve been on trial for a bit and I’m just happy to get it over the line and I can’t wait to get started. 

“The first day I came in I thought I did really well and then they asked me to come back in and then that was me, I was happy then.”

Career to date

Kinnear joined Rangers as a youngster and rose up through the academy of the Scottish giants.

The Edinburgh-born stopper was a regular for the Ibrox club at various youth levels and was loaned out for the first time to Camelon in 2019.
