After playing for Livingston Star Boys Club, Keith came through the youth system at United. He was a Scotland youth international and spent a short time on loan at Forfar Athletic and later East Fife before he graduated to the first team in 2009.

Despite suffering two serious injuries, he recovered to become a feature in the side and in 2010, he collected a winners medal in the Scottish Cup Final against Ross County. Keith established himself as a regular in the first team during the 2011-12 and he continued his form into the 2012-13 season. At the start of both seasons, he secured his place in modern day history as a scorer in both Europa League ties, against both Slask Wroclaw in 2011 and Dynamo Moscow in 2012. Under new manager Jackie McNamara, he played his 100th game for the Club.

The return of Mark Wilson provided competition for Keith in 2013, but the full back held onto his place in the team, collecting a runners-up medal in the Scottish Cup Final in May, as one of the few players remaining from the side who won the trophy in 2010.

With his contract soon coming to an end, Keith was sent out on loan to Hibs during the January transfer window of 2015, where he stayed until the end of the season. Upon the expiration of his contract, he was released.
