Fraser signed for Hibs in 1954, but was initially a part-time player while he completed his national service. He had the unenviable task of covering for and eventually replacing Gordon Smith, who Fraser idolised. Fraser played in the 1958 Scottish Cup Final and some of Hibs' famous European nights in the early 1960s, including a friendly match win against Real Madrid and a Fairs Cup win against Barcelona.

After spending a few years as a player-coach in Hibs' reserve team, Fraser briefly played for Stenhousemuir, before returning to Hibs as a coach. Bob Shankly brought him back initially, and Willie MacFarlane then offered Fraser a full-time coaching position. Fraser continued in this position under Eddie Turnbull, as Hibs enjoyed one of the most successful periods in their history in the early 1970s.
