Kevin McNaughton (born August 28 1982, Dundee) is a Scottish football defender, currently playing for Cardiff City in the Football League Championship. Nicknamed 'The Silver Fox' by teammates due to his grey hair, McNaughton is a versatile player who can play anywhere in defence and can also play in more defensive minded midfield roles.

Beginning his career in the Scottish Premier League with Aberdeen after coming through the clubs youth programme, McNaughton was thrust into the first team at 18 and became a regular for the 2000-01 and 2001-02 seasons in a team containing lots of young players brought through the youth system like Darren Mackie, Russell Anderson and Darren Young. It wasn't long before he won his first Scotland cap against Nigeria. However, his form declined, and so did his Scotland career after falling out with then manager Berti Vogts at half-time in a friendly against Denmark,

McNaughton was no longer first choice for Scotland, but under new Aberdeen manager Jimmy Calderwood, his form improved and he won a recall to the Scottish national team.

During the 2005-06 season McNaughton was linked with moves to Celtic and Fulham but nothing came of either, and it was announced that he would be joining Football League Championship side Cardiff City.

Since joining Cardiff, McNaughton's has been an important part of manager Dave Jones's plans and his form once again earned him a recall to the Scottish national team, although injury robbed him of the chance to take his place in the squad. McNaughton played in all 6 matches of the clubs run to the 2008 FA Cup Final, including scoring his first goal for the club on 27 January, 2008 with a 20-yard volley in a 2-1 victory over Hereford United in the fourth round.
