Creaney began his career with Celtic, signing from the boys club and making his debut in the first team in 1989. He played 113 times for the club, scoring 36 goals. It was during this time that he was capped for Scotland under-21, for whom he reached the 1992 European under-21 Championship semi-finals. At club level, he never fully established himself as a first choice striker with veterans such as Frank McAvennie and Charlie Nicholas still featuring prominently in the first team. Creaney's sole honour during his time in Glasgow was as a runner-up in the 1990–91 Scottish League Cup.
Creaney was transferred to Portsmouth in January 1994, going on to score 30 goals in just over 60 matches and earning a £1.5m-valued move to Manchester City eighteen months later, with City paying £500,000 and £1million-rated Paul Walsh moving to Fratton Park in exchange.
The move gave Creaney an opportunity to play Premier League football (which Portsmouth had failed to come anywhere near in spite of Creaney's fine form in Division One) where, despite scoring on his debut, he failed to prosper, scoring only four goals in his 21 City appearances. Later in the season he faced competition for the role as Uwe Rosler's strike partner from new arrival Nigel Clough, who was similarly disappointing.
He was loaned out to Oldham, Ipswich, Burnley and Chesterfield whilst at Maine Road before being released in 1999. He had brief spells at St. Mirren, Notts County, Finnish side TPV, Raith Rovers and Clydebank before retiring in December 2000.
In January 2010 Creaney returned to football when he was named as assistant to manager Danny Drew at Bellshill Athletic. On 12 October 2010, Creaney become Manager at Bellshill Athletic after Danny Drew resigned as manager.
