Lee Hodson came through the ranks with his local club, Watford and made his debut as a substitute against Derby County on the final day of the 2008/09 season aged just 17. He established himself in the firstteam in the following campaign, earning praise for his consistency and making use of his strength, speed and reading of the game which allowed him to become an effective attacking force. Two-footed, he has played both in his favoured right-back role and at left-back for the Hornets.

Already a Youth international, Hodson was elevated to the Under-21 team while still just 17 years-old to make his debut in a Euro qualifier in the Czech Republic in September 2009. He is joined at Watford by fellow Northern Ireland Under-21s, Michael Bryan and Adam Thompson.

Hodson received his first senior call-up in November 2010 as a late replacement in the Northern Ireland squad to face Morocco. He played the full ninety minutes and acquitted himself well in a low-key 1-1 draw.

In July 2013, Hodson joined MK Dons on a free transfer. He soon fell out of the reckoning for both club and country, but a loan spell at Kilmarnock in the second half of the 2015/16 season appeared to re-invigorate him, and he was a surprise inclusion in Michael O'Neill's Euro 2016 finals squad.

Hodson joined Rangers on a three year deal ahead of the 2016/17 season.
