McGill was born in Dumfries. He played football for Nithsdale Wanderers before joining First Division club Queen of the South in July 1958. Queens were relegated at the end of the season, and in August 1959, McGill moved south of the border to sign for English Fourth Division club Carlisle United. He spent only one season with Carlisle, but scored twice on his debut, on the opening day of the season in a 2–2 draw against Crystal Palace, and finished the season as the club's leading league scorer with 12 goals. After leaving Carlisle, McGill moved to Kettering Town, for whom he scored 26 goals from 40 appearances and helped the club gain promotion to the Southern League Premier Division. In September 1961 he returned to Queen of the South.
