Player Profile

Edinburgh-born Coutts spent the majority of his footballing career north of the border but finished his career at Filbert Street when he signed from Hearts in May 1934. He'd played for Edinburgh Ashton and Dunbar United before moving on to Hearts and then Leicester following a loan stint with Leith Athletic.

Coutts didn't qualify for a Second Division championship medal in 1934 but he was a useful player who could play on the wing or as a wing-half. He featured for City in pre-war time and during the first season of wartime football, where he went on to guest play for Northampton Town and Nottingham Forest, whom he featured for against City at Filbert Street on Christmas Day in 1941.

Coutts was part of Leicester's centenary celebrations and made 48 league appearances for the Foxes, chipping in with four goals along the way.
