CareerEdit

Cameron was put on the bench for Dundee for their final game of the 2018–19 season at home to St Mirren. Despite being due to receive his professional debut, a red card for Darren O'Dea prevented Cameron from getting on, according to manager James McPake.[2] After scoring a game-winning goal in a friendly against Brechin City, Cameron made his professional debut for Dundee in the Scottish League Cup, coming off the bench in an away win over Raith Rovers.[3] In January 2020, Cameron made his league debut and first professional start in a loss away to Dunfermline Athletic.[4][5]

In October 2020, Cameron signed a new contract with Dundee keeping him at the club until 2023.[6] The next day, he joined Scottish League One side Peterhead on a season-long loan, stating his aim to prove himself with The Blue Toon and help him progress to play for Dundee in the future.[7][8] Cameron made his debut for Peterhead in an away win against Scottish Premiership side Dundee United in the League Cup.[9] He made his league debut for them the next week against Airdrieonians.[10] Cameron scored his first goal for Peterhead in their next league game the following week against Clyde.[11] In January 2021, following the three-week suspension of League One by the SFA and SPFL due to the worsening COVID-19 situation in Scotland, Cameron was recalled by Dundee.[12][13] After being recalled from Peterhead, manager Jim McInally praised Cameron's talent and professionalism, considering his spell at the club "as good as it gets when it comes to loan players."[14]

In June 2021, Cameron would once again join Peterhead on a season-long loan.[15]
