McLean was a half back flanker for Melbourne and played in three premiership sides, going back to back in 1940 and 1941, followed by another premiership in 1948. He missed the 1942 and 1943 seasons due to the war. As he was always used in defense he kicked only one goal in his career which came in his 46th game, in Melbourne's 1945 encounter against North Melbourne at Punt Road. He represented the Victorian interstate team twice in 1948.
