Beedie was a "very solid" midfielder, who played a significant role in an infamous incident between Hibernian and Rangers at the start of the 1986–87 season. Graeme Souness was making his first appearance in Scottish football as player-manager of Rangers in a match at Easter Road, but he was sent off for an "assault" on Hibs player George McCluskey. That incident had been sparked by Beedie making a strong challenge on Souness. Beedie also scored a goal in that match, in which Hibs secured a famous 2–1 win.

After retiring from playing in 1995, Beedie moved to Australia, where he was assistant manager at Wollongong Wolves. Beedie remained in the country and managed Illawarra side Dapto.
