Neil first joined United as a teenager in January 1985. He played in the reserves but in November that year he returned to his native South Africa. Four years later he was given a second chance at Tannadice and played in the reserves again for two years but was then transferred to Falkirk and later joined Dundee.

In August 1996, Neil joined United for a third time. He was at Tannadice for three years but his appearances were restricted by injury and, transfer listed in May 1998, he was released a year later, joining Ayr United.
