In January 1994, Muggleton was signed by Scottish club, Celtic, for whom he made 13 appearances in the remainder of the 1993–94 season, before joining Stoke City in the summer of 1994 for a fee of £150,000. In a seven-year spell at Stoke, Muggleton played more than 170 games. He was also loaned to Rotherham, Sheffield United, Chesterfield, Mansfield Town and Cardiff City. Muggleton was released by Stoke in the summer of 2001 and joined Cheltenham. However, he was kept out of the side by Steve Book and after a one-month loan at Bradford City, he was allowed to leave the club, and join Chesterfield in May 2002, where manager Dave Rushbury described him as, "...a mature goalkeeper who will provide the voice of experience behind our younger defenders."
