Club career

Born in Santo Tirso, Porto District, Moutinho moved to C.S. Marítimo from amateurs União Desportiva de Rio Maior, but spent the better part of his early years with the former's reserves. He also served two loans whilst under contract, including a two-year spell at F.C. Penafiel in the Segunda Liga.

In the summer of 2004, Moutinho signed with Falkirk in Scotland, initially on a one-year deal. He scored 19 goals overall in his first four seasons at the club, including a memorable goal against Rangers for the equaliser in a 2–2 draw in 2005, but a knee injury kept him out of the second half of his team's Scottish First Division championship-winning side in 2004–05.

Moutinho was close to sealing a transfer to Kayserispor, but the deal was not concluded before the closure of the Turkish transfer window in early 2008. On 21 May, he eventually left Falkirk and signed a return to his country as he re-joined Marítimo. He remarked "I am going to keep the house I have in Falkirk and hopefully I’ll be back. I feel now is the right move for me with a two-year contract but after that I will be a free agent again and who knows"– signalling his intent to return to the Bairns in the future.

Rarely used during his second spell in Madeira, Moutinho finished the campaign on loan to fellow Primeira Liga side Rio Ave FC. He also did not manage to find the net here.

In October 2009, Moutinho was released from his contract with Marítimo and rejoined Falkirk. On 8 November, he started and scored during the club's 3–3 home draw against Celtic and, in January of the following year, his contract was extended until the end of 2009–10.

Moutinho left the Falkirk Stadium on 13 May 2010, signing with AEP Paphos F.C. from Cyprus. In the final days of the following transfer window, however, following a trial with fellow Scottish Premier League club Motherwell, he re-signed for Falkirk for a third time, being released at the end of the season.

In early August 2011, 32-year-old Moutinho changed teams and countries again, joining FC Brașov in Romania. Subsequently, he signed a one-year contract with Spain's CD Atlético Baleares, in the third level.

On 31 March 2015, after nearly two years out of football, Moutinho moved to Scottish League One team Stenhousemuir until June. At the end of the campaign, he was released.

After one season in the Portuguese lower leagues, being relegated with C.F. Caniçal, 37-year-old Moutinho retired and became a football consultant in Madeira.
