There, his talents came to show and soon he was spotted by Liverpool scouts, but also scouts from Wolverhampton were interested for his services. He opted for Wolverhampton, thinking that it would be quite hard to reach first line-up at Liverpool.
This turned out to be quite good decision, as he became one of the best players at Wolverhapmton. In his professional debut, Robbie scored twice against the Norwich City, and in the first season, he scored 11 goals in 38 games.

He continued at Coventry where he left off in Wolverhampton, as he again scored twice on his debut, this time against Derby County. He played only one season for the Coventry and scored 12 goals in 31 games, after which he was sold to Italian side Inter Milan.

The following year Leeds bought out Robbie’s contract and made him an official Leeds player. He played for Leeds the next three seasons, after which he joined Tottenham Hotspur.
Robbie stayed in Tottenham until 2009-2010, with the exception of the 2008-2009 season, which he spent at Liverpool. He wore the Spurs jersey on 238 occasions and scored 91 goals, making him one of the best strikers of the team. Also, his net worth increased during that time, thanks to the lucrative contracts he had signed during his stay at White Hart Lane.
After Tottenham, he spent two years on loan at Celtic and West Ham United, before he joined LA Galaxy in 2011.
