Nielsen signed for Liverpool from Danish 2nd Division side Noc Heatin FC 1997 and was at Anfield for five years, but he left in 2002 having never playing a competitive game for the club. However, his shirt did taste Premier League action, against Everton on 27 September 1999. In the 77th minute of the game, goalkeeper Sander Westerveld and Everton striker Francis Jeffers got into a fight and both were sent off, but due to Liverpool having used all of their substitutions, left back Steve Staunton borrowed Nielsen's shirt and filled in as goalkeeper for the remainder of the match.

Nielsen retired from playing in September 2007 in order to concentrate on his political science university degree. In March 2008 he made his comeback.
