Hutton was at Murray Park to launch the club's new third kit which will be worn for the first time against Dundee United on 16 October, the game he has targeted for his return to first-team action.
However, the Scotland Under-21 player admitted that his imminent comeback seemed a forlorn hope during his darker days.
He said: "That's me getting back to full training so hopefully I can get my fitness levels back up to where they were.
"Hopefully, if it goes well then I will be selected for the next game but I just need to wait and see.
"There's been a lot of ups and downs over the last months. It did cross my mind a couple of times that it could be over for me but you just have to put those thoughts out of your head and plod on.
"I was doing well then I had a setback with a muscle injury in my leg so it's really been up and down. But I'm glad that I can now push on and hopefully get back in the team."
Hutton said that the encouragement he received from the Rangers supporters during his time out of action boosted his morale.Reuse content
