Born in Cowdenbeath, Bissett played for Glencraig Thistle and Third Lanark prior to the First World War in his native Scotland before moving to Manchester United in 1919. He made his Football League debut on 15 November 1919 in a 1–0 loss at Burnley and remained at Old Trafford for two years, scoring 10 goals in 42 appearances.
In November 1921, he transferred to Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he made his debut on 3 December 1921 in a 2–0 win at Port Vale. He remained a first choice player for the remainder of the season, scoring nine times in 29 games. However, the appointment of George Jobey as manager during the 1922–23 season saw Bissett's opportunities decline and he featured only sporadically in that campaign.
