Bio Extra

Turner began his career playing with St Mirren and Partick Thistle youth teams, before signing with Scottish League One side Stranraer in 2015. His first appearance for the Stair Park club came as a final-minute substitution against Stenhousemuir on 12 September 2015, with his first full start coming a week later against Albion Rovers. Turner spent four years with Stranraer, before signing a two-year contract with Scottish Championship side Dunfermline Athletic on 28 May 2019. In March 2021, Turner moved on loan to Scottish League One club Airdrieonians until the end of the season. Turner left Dunfermline following the end of his contract in May 2021. Turner signed for Partick Thistle, having previously been at Firhill as a youth player. Turner scored his first competitive goal for Thistle in December 2021, scoring a 96th minute winner in a 1-0 home win against Raith Rovers. Turner is the son of former Morton, St Johnstone, Partick Thistle and St Mirren midfielder, Tommy Turner.

Turner finished top of the Thistle assists chart in both of his seasons at the club. In competitive action, he registered 10 assists in 2021-22, following that up with 14 in the following campaign. In that 2022-23 season, he really came on to a game under Kris Doolan, and greatly contributed as the goals went flying in. In the final tally-up, 101 competitive goals were scored by Thistle during the season, with Turner being directly responsible for a hugely impressive tally of 21 goal involvements. His last action as a Jag was to score in the penalty shoot-out at Dingwall, but Thistle eventually lost out to Ross County in what was a dramatic play-off final, and a season full of potential came crashing down to nothing. He was made an offer to remain at Firhill, but, on 19 June 2023, it was announced that he had decided to continue his footballing career elsewhere. Days later, Turner signed a two-year contract with Ross County. Ouch.

After just half a season at County, Kyle stepped back to the Championship, switching to Raith Rovers in the January transfer window of 2024. Ironically, he would square up against Thistle in the play-offs, helping to defeat the Jags. He was ineligible for the Ross County v Raith Rovers final, with County - the easy winners - being his parent club. In June 2024, leaving County by mutual consent, Turner re-signed with Partick Thistle on a 2-year-deal.
