Paul Hanlon (born 20 January 1990) is a Scottish professional association football player who plays for Scottish Premier League club Hibernian as a left-sided defender. Hanlon has also represented Scotland at under 19 and under 21 levels.


Club career

Hanlon played for the well known Edinburgh youth football club Hutchison Vale, along with future Hibs teammate Danny Galbraith.[3] Hanlon was an attacking midfielder who scored plenty of goals in youth football, but was converted to a defensive position after he signed for Hibs.[3] He played his first senior game for Hibs on 12 January 2008, against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Cup, due to injuries sustained by David Murphy and Lewis Stevenson.[4] Hanlon played for Hibs on a regular basis over the next seven months, and he agreed a five year contract with the club.[5 ]

During the 2008–09 season, however, Hanlon was replaced by Ian Murray as Hibs' regular left back.[6 ] Hanlon was loaned out to St. Johnstone in December 2008, initially for one month.[6 ] St. Johnstone wanted to extend the loan arrangement, but Hibs refused to allow this.[7] Hanlon went straight back into the Hibs team after returning from St. Johnstone, but he was dropped soon afterwards by Mixu Paatelainen due to a defensive error he made in a match against Kilmarnock.

International career

Hanlon captained Scotland at under–19 level,[1][5 ] and made his debut at under–21 level in a 1–0 win against Albania in March 2009.[8]
