He’s made 15 appearances in the Premiership this term following a summer switch from St Johnstone. Easton’s in his third stint with the South Lanarkshire club.

The defender started at Accies and played just over 100 games after graduating from their academy. Easton then moved to Burnley in 2009 before returning to Hamilton on loan in 2010.

He returned to Scottish football with Dundee in 2012 and in 2013 made a switch to St Johnstone. Easton made himself a Perth hero during his time at McDiarmid Park, winning the Scottish Cup.
