Born in Glasgow, he grew up supporting Rangers and played youth football at Rangers SBC, St. Johnstone, Rangers SABC and Clyde before joining Scottish First Division club Hamilton Academical in 2003. He made his professional debut playing for Hamilton against Ross County in January 2005 and would slowly establish himself in their first-team during the following season. During his time with The Accies he featured in 192 games, scored 9 and assisted 5 goals, moreover he helped the club win promotion to the Scottish Premier League and had captained them several times all by the time he was 22 years old. After being courted by several Premier League and EFL Championship clubs the Scottish midfielder put pen to paper and signed for Premier League outfit Wigan Athletic on a four-year contract on 23 July 2010. He played a bit-part role in his debut season but by the time his second season arrived he had already established himself as a first-team regular, scoring his first goal for The Latics against Tottenham Hotspur on 31 January 2012, and followed it up two games later with the winning strike against Bolton Wonderers. In the 2012/13 season the Scotsman played 40 games as his side suffered both incredible highs and lows, Wigan Athletic upset Manchester City to win the FA Cup, but were relegated from the Premier League just three days later. On 1 September 2014 the Scotsman signed for Crystal Palace, scoring his first goal for The Eagles on 13 December 2014 in a 1-1 draw against Stoke City, a first-team regular the Scotsman has made 170 appearances for Crystal Palace, scoring 19 and assisting 13 goals.
