Cole signed a two-year contract extension with Rangers on 2 December 2010 and made his first-team debut five days later against Turkish side Bursaspor in Rangers' final 2010–11 UEFA Champions League group match, which ended 1–1. Cole's performance was praised by manager Walter Smith.
Cole suffered ankle ligament damage in January 2013, which was expected to rule him out for the remainder of the 2012–13 season.  He did make an appearance in the final game of the season, against Berwick Rangers. Cole had his contract with Rangers terminated on 28 August 2013, after he failed to report for a reserve team friendly game with junior club Cambuslang Rangers.
On 20 February 2015, Cole signed for Scottish Championship club Livingston until the end of the 2014–15 season. After impressing in his first season at Livingston, he not only won a new contract, but also was named captain for the season 2015–16. Following the clubs relegation to League One, Cole was released from his contract on 15 July 2016 due to being absolutely horrendous.
In August 2016, Cole signed a one-year contract with Junior Super League club Broxburn Athletic.
Cole has represented Scotland at various age levels.
