Neil came through the youth system at Rangers, but after making just one first team appearance he was released in the summer of 1995.

United manager Billy Kirkwood had coached Neil during his time as youth coach with Rangers, and brought the right sided defender to Tannadice, where he made his debut against Morton in the opening League match of the season. He made only a handful of first team appearances, all before October, and spent most of the season in the reserves. His goal against Cowdenbeath in the League Challenge Cup proved to be his only in senior football.

Released in May 1996 he joined junior side Petershill, later moving to Rutherglen Glencairn.
