Bio Extra

Fox was part of the Scotland squad that reached the final of the UEFA Under-19 Championship in 2006, alongside the likes of Robert Snodgrass, Graham Dorrans and Steven Fletcher. The goal keeper received his first senior call-up in November 2013, when Gordon Strachan included him in his 25-player squad for the international challenge matches against USA and Norway. Scott began his career as a youth at Celtic, and had a loan spell at East Fife, before Gordon Chisholm signed him for Queen of the South in 2010. He followed Chishom to Dundee later that year, and after the club went in to administration, signed for Partick Thistle. He received the club's Player of the Year award at the end of season 2010/11, and helped The Jags win promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of season 2012/13.

Fox made the switch to Scottish Premiership rivals Ross County, signing a two-year deal. During his time at the club, Fox helped County win the Scottish League Cup, though he missed the final due to injury. Fox also won the Scottish Championship and the Scottish Challenge Cup. Fox left County in May 2019 having not agreed a new contract with the club. Fox signed a two-year contract with Partick Thistle on 1 July 2019. He made his first appearance in his second spell at Thistle in a 2–2 draw with Hamilton Academical on 20 July 2019. He started the league season as backup goalkeeper to Jamie Sneddon, however, he soon became the club's permanent No.1 goalkeeper after the arrival of new manager Ian McCall. Following Partick Thistle’s early relegation to League One as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Fox invoked a relegation release clause on 6 June 2020, ending his second spell at the club.

On 22 June 2020, Fox signed a one year deal with Scottish Premiership outfit Motherwell on a free transfer. During pre-season training he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury that prevented him from playing for most of the 2020–21 season. Fox was loaned on an emergency basis to Greenock Morton in May 2021 for their play-off with Airdrieonians. Upon his return to Motherwell, he signed a new one-year contract. On 23 February 2022, Fox signed a new contract with Motherwell, until the summer of 2023. On 1 September 2022, Fox was loaned out to Scottish League One club Queen of the South for the remainder of the 2022-23 season. This was due to goalkeeper Tom Ritchie's loan recall by Aberdeen.
