Smith began his professional career at Falkirk, making his debut in 1989. He was snapped up by Aberdeen in 1991 and played in several cup finals for the Dons. He scored an own goal in the 1992 Scottish League Cup Final, which ultimately won the cup for Rangers.
In 1996, he left for French club Rennes, before returning to Aberdeen in 1997. He signed for Hibernian in 2000 and despite falling out of favour with manager Franck Sauzée, re-established himself as a regular in the team under Bobby Williamson. After a solid spell at Hibs, Smith was allowed to leave Easter Road for Cowdenbeath in 2006. He was then loaned to Dundee from Cowdenbeath after he was passed over for the managerial position.
