Born in Motherwell, Robbie was playing amateur football for Bathgate in Scotland when signed by Bury in 1921. Spending 13 years as an outside-right for the Gigg Lane side, he clocked up 420 appearances and scored a impressive 102 goals. He was with Bury during their greatest year, when they achieved their highest ever finish: 4th in the top flight in 1926. In 1935, just when it seemed he would be a one-club man, he left for Home Park, but played just three games for Argyle early in the 1935-36 season. A few weeks later he played one game for Manchester United, and some records suggest he was loaned to United for that match, a defeat for the Red Devils at Southampton. Moving along the south coast, he wound down his career with Margate.
