Rado was a youth player with his hometown side Sokół Szamocin in his native Poland before he made his professional debut at the age of 21. Over the next three years, he had spells with six different regional clubs before signing for Stomil Olsztyn. A season later he moved to Aluminium Konin, making several appearances before moving to the now defunct Amica Wronki, giving him his first taste of European football in the UEFA Cup. When Lech Poznan and Amica merged, he joined the new Poznan side. Failing to break into the team, Rado left within a season and he went on to become the first choice keeper at Korona Kielce, where his form earned him his first Poland international cap. In 2011, he moved abroad to Cypriot side Alki Larnaca, where he spent a year. In February the following year, Rado agreed a pre-contract with United, and in the months he waited for his deal to begin, he played for Polish side KS Cracovia.

His move to United was completed in the summer of 2012 and he was instantly installed as the Club's first choice keeper and was ever present throughout the 2012-13 season. He remained an ever present until May 2014, having played 89 consecutive games for United. That month, he collected a runners-up medal in the Scottish Cup Final against St Johnstone. Rado remained first choice during the final year of his contract, earning a reputation for making a series of penalty kick saves. He collected a runners up medal in the League Cup Final that season before leaving the Club upon the expiration of his contract.
