Gary Steven Roberts (born 2 February 1987 in Chester) is an English footballer who plays for League Two side Port Vale. A deep-lying playmaker, he has been praised for his vision and ball distribution skills. However off the field he has struggled to control drink and gambling problems.

He started his career with Crewe Alexandra in 2003, and made 133 league and cup appearances over the next five years. In 2008 he had a loan spell at Yeovil Town, before he joined the club permanently the following year. He signed with Rotherham United in November 2009, having impressed on trial, before he was released in summer 2010. Crewe, Yeovil and Rotherham all cited disciplinary problems as their reason for letting him go. He joined Port Vale in July 2010, having been handed a 'last chance' by manager Micky Adams.

In addition to his domestic career, he has also represented England at under-16, under-17, under-18 and under-19 levels.
