Aitken began his senior football career by playing for Cliftonville while undergoing his National Service in Northern Ireland. After completing his National Service, he signed for Hibernian in 1955. He made his debut for Hibs in a match against Falkirk, playing in a pair of boots borrowed from Gordon Smith. Aitken became a key player in the Hibs team over the next few years, including their run to the 1958 Scottish Cup Final. Aitken's injury early in that match badly affected Hibs' chances, as substitutes were not yet allowed.
Aitken moved to West Bromwich Albion in 1959, but was hindered by injury during his time with the Midlands club. He returned to Scotland with Falkirk, and helped them gain promotion to Division One. He then moved on to Raith Rovers, helping them reach a Scottish Cup semi-final. Aitken also played for Gala Fairydean before retiring from the game.
