Club career

Monti started his career with Celtic, signing as a nine-year-old and working his way through the ranks to the Celtic first team squad where he was earmarked as an attacking wing-back by the late Tommy Burns. He left the club at 18 to sign for Greenock Morton in April 2009.

Monti scored the first goal of his senior career with a 20-yard drive in the 2–1 defeat away at Dunfermline. He also scored the winning goal as Morton avoided relegation, at the same time relegating Ayr United, on 1 May 2010. Monti rejected a new contract offer at Morton, and after a potential move to Dundee fell through, he was left without a club.

After leaving Morton, Monti left the professional game and played local amateur football in Glasgow. While playing for Drumchapel United, he was convinced by new Pollok manager John Richardson to sign for the Junior side in March 2012. Monti scored 16 goals in 15 games as Pollok preserved their Premier Division status and he extended his contract with the Glasgow side for another season. In his final game for Pollok he scored two and set-up one in a 3–0 over Ashfield in the Central League Cup final, as well as winning man of the match.

On 10 July 2013, Monti was signed by Dundee manager John Brown after a successful trial and scored his first competitive goal for the club against Alloa Athletic in the Scottish Challenge Cup. Monti was released by recently appointed Dundee manager Paul Hartley in April 2014 after making nineteen appearances for the club.

After briefly rejoining Pollok, Monti moved to Maltese club Żebbuġ Rangers in August 2014. He moved on in the summer of 2015 to fellow Maltese club Qormi but was released in December.

After returning from Malta, Monti joined Pollok for a third time in January 2016 and was in Loks losing Scottish Junior Cup final side against Beith Juniors the following May. In September 2016, Monti was placed on the transfer list by Pollok and he signed for Kilwinning Rangers in October.

International career

Monti has played for the Scotland national side at all youth levels from under-16s to under-18s, playing in the under 17s in Germany alongside Hearts starlet Gary Glen and against Thomas Müller. He also made three starting appearances for Ross Mathie's under-18 side, in defeats to France, Turkey and a draw with the United States.
