Donald joined Scottish top-flight side Partick Thistle in 1923. In his three years with The Jags Donald made 35 League appearances, and in 1926 he travelled to New York City to play for Indiana Flooring in the American Soccer League. In his eight months with the team Donald had 39 appearances and scored three goals. Donald was then suspended because he was not registered to play in the United States.
In May 1927 Donald returned to Scotland to join Heart of Midlothian for a season, before returning to the United States to play for the New York Nationals. Donald had 119 appearances and scored twice for the Nationals and won the 1928 National Challenge Cup. Donald moved on yet again in July 1930, this time to England to play for Chelsea. He played 24 league games in two years with Chelsea and then 136 games during his four years with Bristol Rovers.
Donald finally returned to Scotland in 1936 to sign for Dunfermline Athletic.
In the 1940s Donald moved to his home town to coach the Kirkintilloch Boys Club.
