Reid was born in Glasgow and started his career as a youth player at Nottingham Forest, but was unable to secure a senior contract. He joined Dundee United in July 1970, making his senior debut the following month. Despite an impressive early impact, including scoring against Grasshoppers in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, he spent most of his three years at the club playing in the reserves. Reid played in 12 league matches for the Tannadice Park club and scored 3 goals.
Reid signed for Queen of the South in September 1973, having initially turned down the move the previous month. Reid played in 193 matches in all competitions for Queens, with 154 of those being league matches. Reid is currently 8th equal in Queens all-time goal scoring list alongside Jimmy Robertson with 89 goals in all competitions, with 79 of those being league goals. Fellow player Ian McChesney described Reid as 'the player who made things tick'. Reid's Queens career came to an end in January 1977 when he was transferred for a fee of £4,000 to Airdrieonians where he played in 7 league matches and scored 2 goals.
Reid then played with Forfar Athletic where he played in 29 league matches and scored 7 goals.
