Owen was a prolific striker with Dumbarton, Clydebank and Airdrieonians, before he moved to Bolton Wanderers and then to United. Already an Under-21 and 'B' international, in 1994 he had gained his one full cap for Republic of Ireland.

Owen was a regular in the United promotion winning side of 1995-96, scoring the crucial winning goal in the play-off against Partick Thistle. In January 1997 he moved to Motherwell in exchange for Jamie Dolan and 75,000.

After spells with Dunfermline Athletic, Ross County (loan), Airdrieonians and Falkirk, Owen returned to United in July 2003 as a player/coach. He spent time at Airdrie United on loan before leaving to join them in July 2004.
