Guthrie was released by Manchester United when he was at the tender age of 15. He made steady progress at Liverpool and finally was rewarded by a first-team debut against Reading in the League Cup in October 2006. He impressed as a good passer of the ball and a very attack-minded player but five of his seven appearances for Liverpool were as a substitute. After spending March to May 2007 with Southampton in the Championship Guthrie was loaned to Bolton in the 2007/08 season and showed he was Premiership class in his 25 appearances, convincing Newcastle to buy him in the summer of 2008 for £2.25 million. Guthrie made 24 Premier League appearances, scoring twice, as Newcastle were relegated to the Championship at the end of the 2008/09 season. He was, however, more prominent as the Geordies made an immediate return to the top division as champions. Guthrie missed the start of 2010/11 because of a knee injury, but was fit enough for a return in the middle of October. However, he only made 14 Premier League appearances by the end of the season and after being on the fringes of the team again he was released by the Magpies at the end of the 2011/12 season. Still only 25-years-old he signed for Premiership newcomers, Reading.
Guthrie appeared in twenty-one Premier League matches for Reading in the 2012/13 season. He also played in four domestic cup matches. His only goal of the season came in Reading's 4-2 defeat at Chelsea in August 2012. The midfielder played in 32 of Reading's 46 Championship matches in 2013/14. He also played against Brighton in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. The Royals ended the season in 7th position just outside the play-off places. Guthrie passed the milestone of two hundred club appearances during the season.
