Beginning his career with Falkirk, Robinson went on to spend around half his career with Dundee, winning four caps for Scotland during his time at Dens Park. Later playing for city rivals Dundee United, Robinson moved on to Hearts and Raith Rovers, ending his senior career with Raith in 1983. Robinson played just under 300 league matches during his fourteen-year career.

In 1989 he joined Dundee United's reserve team to help develop the team's younger players. After his football career, Robinson was a teacher in Kirriemuir. He died after a long illness in 1996 at the age of 46.
