Brett made his debut for Cowdenbeath in the 2009–10 season.[1]

In February 2017 he was suspended by the club after he admitted breaching professional conduct rules on gambling,[2] before being sacked four days later.[3] He had earlier received a four-match ban from the Scottish Football Association for homophobic tweets.[4][5]

On 8 March 2017 Brett signed for Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic until the end of the season.[6] After leaving the club at the end of his contract, Brett returned to senior football, signing for Scottish League Two club Montrose on 11 June 2017.[7] Brett, however, left the club less than three weeks after joining, citing lengthy travel times to and from the club as his main motivation behind quitting.[8]

Shortly after leaving Montrose, Brett re-signed for SJFA East Superleague side Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic.[9]
