As a youth player with St Josephs Boys Club and Crumlin Utd, Gavin signed for Blackburn Rovers as a youth player in 2006. Prior to that, he had also played Gaelic Football for Naomh Olaf! He spent periods on loan at Tranmere Rovers, Rotherham United, Bury and Motherwell, during which he became an Under-21 international for Ireland. He eventually left Blackburn to sign for United on a three-year contract in 2011.
Gavin became an instant hit with the United fans and a regular in Peter Houston's starting eleven as a tall, commanding centre-half. He remained a fixture in Houston's United team until the arrival of new manager Jackie McNamara, when a bad knee injury forced him onto the sidelines.
He re-established himself in the starting lineup a few months into the 2013-14 season and in May, he collected a runners-up medal in the Scottish Cup Final against St Johnstone. In June 2014, Gavin left the Club following the expiry of his contract.
After signing a season long deal at Birmingham City, Gavin's new move ended in disaster as he suffered a cruciate ligament injury in his first game. Unsurprisingly, his contract was not renewed and the following season he signed for Oldham on a short term deal. Out of contract after his Boundary Park spell, Gavin returned to Tannadice as Mixu Paatelainen's first signing, agreeing a deal until the end of the 2015-16 season.
His second United tenure ultimately ended prematurely and in a cloud of controversy after bizarrely picking the ball up and leaving the field of play during a 2-0 defeat to Inverness CT. His contract was terminated on April 12, 2016.

Gavin was born on this date in Dublin, Republic of Ireland.
