Crabbe started his career with Heart of Midlothian. He joined Hearts from Tynecastle Boys Club in 1986 and made his league debut against Clydebank in January 1987. He started as a midfielder but the switch to striker transformed his career. Becoming a regular first team player, he formed a successful striking partnership with John Robertson. He was selected for the Scotland under-21 team and awarded the Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year.
Crabbe left Hearts in 1992 to join Dundee United. His time at the club was disrupted by a broken leg which caused him to miss United's 1994 Scottish Cup win. In five years at the club, Crabbe played around sixty matches, scoring six goals.
In 1997, he joined Falkirk. Later that year he appeared in the Scottish Cup final against Kilmarnock, which Falkirk lost 1-0. Crabbe's next club was Livingston, where he was part of the team to win the First Division in 2000-01. Soon after, however, he moved to Ayr United after a brief spell at Raith Rovers on loan. At Ayr he was part of the team to make the run to the Scottish Cup Semi-Final against Celtic which Ayr lost 3-0. Crabbe himself put out former club Dundee United in the Quarter-Final.
He then went on to play for Alloa Athletic, Albion Rovers and Raith Rovers again, where he was released in the summer of 2006, subsequently joining East Fife in the Third Division. He retired on 1 June 2007 after making ten appearances for the club.
