A former Northern Ireland international, Little came through the youth ranks at Ibrox before making his senior debut in 2007 and remained with the Gers until the summer of 2014.
Little played for the club in the bottom tier, and will also be fondly remembered for scoring a crucial goal against Celtic in 2012, in a 3-2 victory which prevented the Hoops from winning the Premiership title in Rangers’ backyard.
Little went on to play for the likes of Preston North End, Stirling Albion and Dumbarton, but a string of injuries has forced him to throw the towel in at the age of just 29, as he told his Twitter followers this evening:

He might not have been the greatest player to ever wear the iconic light blue jersey, but it seems there’s plenty of goodwill for Little from supporters of his former club:
All the best Andy. A top pro who always gave everything for the jersey. pic.twitter.com/Jroc42HBNq

All the best in the future, Andy. One of the few from the banter years who always gave it his all. Hopefully you'll be able to use your experiences as a player to your n benefit as a coach if you continue with that.
