Lithgow made his competitive debut for Hearts in a 4–0 League Cup win over Alloa Athletic in September 2006, appearing as a second-half substitute for the injured Hristos Karipidis. This was not, however, Lithgow's first involvement with the first team squad: he was an unused substitute on his 17th birthday back in the 2004–05 season, when a flu epidemic forced the Edinburgh club to promote numerous members of their under-19 side to the first team squad for a match with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
He made three appearances for Stirling Albion in a loan spell during the latter part of the 2007–08 season.
He was released by Hearts in August 2008. He trained with Clyde, and appeared in reserve team matches, before signing a short term deal until the end of the year on 29 October 2008. He made his Clyde debut in a 2–2 draw with St Johnstone in November 2008. Lithgow's contract was terminated in June 2009, following Clyde's relegation and financial troubles, however, in July 2009, he signed a new one-month contract with the club. Lithgow was in fine form for Clyde during the season, and ended the campaign winning three Player of the Year awards. Following relegation to the Third Division, Lithgow turned down the offer of a new contract, and left the club in May 2010. Despite a trial with Greenock Morton FC, he was not offered a full-time contract and returned to Clyde for the 2010–11 season. He rejected the offer of a new contract in May 2011, and left the club again.
On 21 June 2011, Lithgow signed a contract with Dumbarton, in two seasons he made 63 league appearances and scored a total of five goals for the club.
In the summer of 2013 he signed for Ayr United. In 2014, Lithgow signed for Stenhousemuir, staying with the side for one season before joining Scottish League One rivals Airdrieonians in June 2015.
