In the relaunched A-League, he secured a deal with Queensland Roar in 2005, before moving to Europe in June 2006 to join Scottish Premier League club Falkirk. His career was set to take of with some fantastic displays for Falkirk but unfortunately a difference of opinion with Falkirk boss John Hughes ended his stay in Scotland, the "Bairns" in a good position at sixth in the SPL and through to the semi finals of the League Cup. Before departing Scotland Higgins stated it was a boyhood dream to play against his much loved Glasgow Celtic at Park Head on December 23, 2006. Higgins played a key role at keeping Celtic at bay and was a stand out for the Bairns, saying after the game "no one can take that away from me, I loved every minute of it and knowing my family was here and my best mate Barry who is a mad hoops fan was sitting watching back in Australia makes me very proud" however they eventually went down one nil. He departed Scotland on 24 January 2007 to join Israeli side Maccabi Herzliya.
When Higgins joined Herzliya, he became the first Australian in Israeli football. With some stellar performances he led his club to the Toto Cup final, a first ever for the club, where they defeated Hapoel Kfar Saba 2–1 at the National Stadium in Ramat Gan.
Unfortunately, despite helping Herzliya to lift the Toto Cup and avoid relegation from the Israeli Premier League, Higgins left the club in late May 2007 as the club moved to secure the Macedonian national team keeper, Jane Nikolovski, as a replacement in a deal that ultimately fell through.
In December 2008, Higgins signed a four game contract with the Wellington Phoenix as cover for Mark Paston. He has not yet made an appearance for the Phoenix. He was released half way through his contract, as Paston became match-fit earlier than expected. He never got any game time with the Phoenix.
Miron Bleiberg, football director of new A-League club Gold Coast United has announced that Higgins will be signed by the club for the 2009–10 season. On 30 September 2008 he was announced along with goalkeeper Jess Vanstrattan as Gold Coast United's inaugural signings.
