A defensive midfielder, he signed for United from Dundee in 2010. Born and bred in Dundee, he attended St John’s High School, completing the United programme in which he was coached by Ian Cathro and Steven Leahy.
Scott has recently returned after a knee injury that occurred in 2014-2015. Scott has been out for over 13 months and is happy to be back playing for the development squad since early September of 2015. Following extensive rehabilitation with the physio at the club he is now back and trying to step up his fitness in order to maximise his game time. However he has been told not to rush and be patient.
Scott made his first team debut on 8 April 2017 v Falkirk at Tannadice starting the game and playing the full 90 minutes.
