Ross Laidlaw began his playing career for Raith Rovers under-19 side. He quickly progressed to the senior side and appeared on bench on two occasions during the 201011 season. Following the departure of Andrew McNeil he became the regular back-up goalkeeper to David McGurn.

However he suffered a setback, injuring his knee, with Raith having to sign Ludovic Roy as a temporary replacement. After recovering from injury, Laidlaw made his senior debut on 3 March 2012, keeping a clean sheet in a 50 home victory against Greenock Morton.

On 22 January 2015, he joined Elgin City on loan. His last game for Elgin was in April 2015, a 54 defeat against Annan Athletic.

Laidlaw returned to Raith Rovers after this loan spell, but failed to displace Kevin Cuthbert as first-choice goalkeeper. In December 2015 he suffered a torn kidney, which kept him out of action for the rest of the season. Laidlaw left the Kirkcaldy side at the end of the 201516 season.

On 6 July 2016, Laidlaw signed a one-year contract with Hibernian.He made his first appearance for Hibernian in the second leg of a Europa League qualifier against Brondby. Laidlaw kept a clean sheet as Hibs won 10 in the second leg, but were knocked out of the competition after a penalty shootout. Although he mainly served as a backup to Ofir Marciano during the 201617 season, Laidlaw made 18 first team appearances. The same season Laidlaw won a Scottish Championship Medal with the Leith side.

He signed a two-year contract with the Easter Road side in May 2017. Laidlaw temporarily took over as first choice goalkeeper in September. He injured a shoulder in November, and this eventually required surgery. Laidlaw returned to first-team training in June 2018.[12] He made his first appearance since injury on 9 August, in a Europa League qualifier against Molde.

Laidlaw moved on loan to Championship club Dundee United in January 2019.In May 2019, Hibs announced that Laidlaw would be released at the end of the season.

Laidlaw signed for newly promoted Scottish Premiership team Ross County on 30th May 2019, on a two year contract.On 13 July 2019, he made his debut for Ross County against Montrose in the Scottish League Cup.
