Lustig began his career with Sandåkerns SK, he then moved to Umeå FC. He played for two years at the club.
Lustig moved to Allsvenskan club GIF Sundsvall for the 2005 season and played in eight games scoring 2 goals. GIF Sundsvall were relegated the following season to the Superettan. They were in that division for the next two years with Lustig playing in 57 of the 60 games. For the 2008 season the team was back in the Allsvenskan and Lustig continued to be regular in the team when he played in all eleven league games before the Euro break. During the summer he moved to the Norwegian club Rosenborg BK.
After four seasons with Rosenborg, Lustig left the club in November 2011. He had attracted interest from other European clubs, such as Scottish Premier League team Celtic, English Premier League club Fulham and La Liga side Espanyol.
On 23 November 2011, Celtic announced that they had signed Lustig on a pre-contract. He officially joined the club on 1 January 2012. He made his debut for Celtic on 3 March, in a 1–1 draw with Aberdeen. He scored his first goal for the Hoops in a 2–2 home draw against Hibernian on 1 September 2012. He was also initially credited with Celtic's second goal that day, although it was later given as an own goal. On 17 July 2013, Lustig opened the scoring in Celtic's 3–0 away victory in the second round of qualifying against Cliftonville in the Champions League.
On 6 February 2017, Lustig performed a classic rabona, in an unbroken 25 pass move involving all 11 Celtic players, which resulted moments later in a goal for teammate Moussa Dembélé, sealing his hat-trick and a 5–2 win over home team St. Johnstone. The goal was shortlisted for FIFA's prestigious Puskas Award.
Lustig played for Sweden's under-18 team. During the 2006 season, Lustig made his national team debut in under-21 team playing in the 2009 European Under-21 Championship. He had been made vice-captain of the team. In total Lustig made 21 appearances for Sweden under-21s.
