He was part of Rangers’ Third Division championship side and remained with the club until 2014. After his release, Little moved to England with a spell at Preston North End and loan spells with Blackpool and Accrington Stanley. In February 2017, Little had been out of football for a while but decided to join League Two side Stirling Albion . He suffered yet another serious injury and was then released in the summer before the club changed its mind and Little rejoined on a one-year deal.
