Signed from Largs Thistle, Derek Grierson made his debut for Queen's as a 17 year old in March 1949 and established himself as a regular in the following season, and scored 63 goals in just 107 appearances over the following three seasons, finishing as Queen's top scorer in each of these three seasons. He was rewarded for his exploits with selection for a Scottish League B Division select for a match against Northern Ireland in April 1952, Scotland winning 6-0, and was also selected for Scotland Amateurs on seven occasions, including a 2-1 win over England at Wembley where he scored one of the goals. He was also one of three Scots selected for the Helsinki Olympic games in 1952.

On his return he signed for Rangers where he played for four and a half years, winning both the League and Scottish Cup, and he was to repeat his cup winning exploits with Falkirk in 1957, and his footballing career ended with spells at Arbroath, Stirling, Forfar, Coleraine and Cowdenbeath.
