Blair Spittal started playing football at youth level with Erskine Boys’ Club before joining Rangers’ youth academy. He later moved to amateurs Queen’s Park, playing at youth level before making his debut for the first team as a substitute against Montrose in November 2012. Three months later he made his first team start in a match against his former club Rangers at Ibrox. Establishing himself as a goalscoring winger with the Spiders over his first two seasons, Blair scored 13 goals in 59 appearances for the Hampden Park club, while also earning the club’s Player of the Year award in 2014. That summer he secured a move to Tannadice, signing a three year deal with the Club.

Blair made his United debut coming off the bench at Parkhead in the third game of the 2014/15 season, and scored his first goal for the Club two weeks later against St Mirren in Paisley. Chances in the first team were limited due to competition for places and he mostly featured from the bench. In March, he collected a runners-up medal as an unused substitute in the League Cup Final.

Within a year, Blair had established himself as an important member of the first team, and under managers Jackie McNamara, then Mixu Paatelainen, he contributed seven goals throughout a difficult 2015-16 season for the Club which ended in relegation. Under manager Ray McKinnon, Blair remained one of only a handful of players to stay at the club following the drop to the SPFL Championship.
