McMillan's career began at Rangers where his career development was documented on the television documentary Blue Heaven, a BBC Scotland programme following the lives of young footballers at Rangers, and went on to captain Rangers reserve team. McMillan made two first team appearances for Rangers but failed to secure a regular starting place; the majority of his time at the club was spent on loan at Hamilton Academical, Queen of the South and Wrexham. McMillan left Rangers in 2013 to join fellow Scottish Premier League side Dunfermline Athletic. He was made redundant the following season after the club entered administration.

In March 2013, McMillan joined Scottish First Division side Partick Thistle and became part of their title-winning team. He was released from his contract in February 2015, following a failed drugs test, and was subsequently banned from all competitive sport for two years. McMillan returned to football in 2017, signing a short-term contract with Clyde, before spending time with Cambuslang Rangers, Edusport Academy and Dumbarton.
