McLean is naturally a centre back, but he can also play at right back or left back. He started his career as a youth player with Rangers. However, a lack of first team opportunities prompted him to join Motherwell on loan during the 200506 season. During his loan spell, he won the Scottish Premier League Young Player of the Month award for March 2006. Motherwell signed him on a permanent basis after he impressed during his loan spell at Fir Park.

On 18 July 2008 he suffered significant damage to his knee in a tackle by Argentinian striker Diego Ruiz during an ill-tempered preseason 'friendly' against CFR Cluj. He resumed a first team place on 28 March 2009, in a 21 win over Inverness CT.

On 1 July 2009 he signed a two-year contract with Scottish Premier League side Falkirk. He became Eddie May's first signing, but Falkirk were relegated to the First Division in 2010. McLean left Falkirk at the end of the 201011 season.

McLean was signed by Football League One club Preston North End on a two-year contract, after a trial period, on 2 August 2011. Mclean scored his first goal for Preston North End against Notts County from a Paul Parry corner, heading in from about six yards out.

He was transfer listed by the club in May 2012.

He signed a two-year deal with Dundee United on 14 June 2012.

On 25 July 2013, it was revealed McLean had left Dundee United by Mutual Consent and he later signed for Ross County on 30 July 2013. He left Ross County at the end of the 201314 season.
