Darren began his career at Meadowbank Thistle before moving to Newcastle United. He was a Scotland Under-21 player when Dundee United signed him and went on to become a full international.

Four minutes into his debut, he was injured and then missed the rest of the season. After recovering, he was back in the side by July 1989 and became a regular in the line up over the next three years. He was top scorer in 1990-91 and collected a runners-up medal Scottish Cup final that year. In July 1992 he moved to Hibs for a fee later set by tribunal at 400,000.

After a spell as a football agent, Darren returned to United as a First Team Coach under manager Jackie McNamara in February 2013.
