After playing junior football for Scone Thistle, Scott signed professional terms for Alex Totten's St. Johnstone in 1991 after coming through the Perth youth system. Scott established himself as a mainstay in the midfields of John McClelland and Paul Sturrock. Nicknamed Fizzy, he was a member of Sturrock's 1996–97 squad that won promotion to the Scottish Premier Division.
After eight years at McDiarmid Park, Scott moved south to join English club Sheffield Wednesday for a £100,000 fee. Scott made only two league appearances for the Owls, but scored one goal — an equaliser in a draw against Newcastle. His time at Hillsborough was plagued by injury, and he was released at the end of his contract in April 2002.
Unable to overcome his injury, Scott decided to retire from the game in 2003 at the age of 29. He is now the General Manager for Virgin Active gym in Sheffield, having returned there in 2007 after becoming fitness manager at the company's Glasgow branch for a two-year spell.
