Thomson began his career with a short spell at English football league side Shrewsbury Town. In 1991 he headed north to play for Brechin City before moving to Aberdeen where he spent five seasons. He was called up for the Scotland U-21's twice but was injured both times.
After falling out of favour with 'The Dons', he moved to Fife side Raith Rovers. It was here he was noticed by former Dunfermline Athletic boss Bert Paton and brought to East End Park. It wasn't until the Jimmy Calderwood era that his full potential developed. He ended his career at East Fife, where he scored once against former club Brechin City.
On the 8 August 2007 Scott had his testimonial against a star-studded Man United XI team which featured players such as Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, Mikaël Silvestre, Paul Scholes and new signing Owen Hargreaves. United eased their way to a 4-0 victory.
