Ronnie Whelan brought the left-back to Greece from Liverpool, but he had a very short spell there. He hurried back home to Liverpool and made a name for himself across the Mersey with Tranmere Rovers. After 269 League games in seven years he moved to another Rovers in Doncaster and was there for four years before joining the Championship's Derby County in the 2010/11 season where he is still a regular.
Roberts appeared in twenty-nine matches in The Championship for Derby County during the 2012/13 season. He also played in three domestic cup-ties.
In the summer of 2013 the 35-year-old defender signed a one-year deal with Bury and was appointed captain. But in January 2014 Roberts had his Bury contract cancelled, which left him free to join Notts. County until the end of the season. He made a total of seventeen league appearances during the 2013/14 season, of which six were in League One with Notts. County and eleven in League Two with Bury.
