PositionForward

Regularly described by the leading pundits as England's most natural finisher, Robbie made his Liverpool debut in 1993.

He announced his arrival with five goals in a Coca-Cola Cup-tie against Fulham in only his fourth game.

He went on to net over 100 Premiership goals but, largely due to their rotation system and a series of injuries, he appeared to fall out of favour at Anfield in 2001-02.

His frustration concluded in an £11million switch to Leeds United with the resumption of his goalscoring prowess securing his selection to the 2002 World Cup finals with former Reds colleagues Michael Owen or Emile Heskey.

Robbie made his international debut against Bulgaria in 1996 with his most important goal coming in the World Cup qualifier against Albania at Newcastle.

He has a tremendous left foot and supreme awareness.

Robbie returned to Liverpool in January 2006 with a contract to the end of the season that was extended to June 2007 in May 2006.

He joined Cardiff City in July 2007 with a one-year contract.

Robbie joined Blackburn Rovers in September 2008 with a three-month contract.
