Robson started his youth career as a 14-year-old in 2011 with Dundee United, signing his first professional contract in June 2014. He went on to make his first-team debut on 22 September 2015 in the Scottish League Cup against Dunfermline Athletic.

In 2016, shortly after penning a two-year extension to his deal, he joined Brechin City on loan. He made six appearances for them, scoring twice. His return to Dundee United was controversial, shortly after heading back to Tannadice, he was listed as a substitute in an SPFL encounter with Inverness CT,  which breached registration rules. Dundee United were subsequently deducted three points and fined £30,000.

He broke into the first-team picture with his parent club the following season, scoring his first goal for the club on 20 August 2016 against Ayr United. Robson made 93 appearances in the Scottish Championship after that, eventually winning the title to send them back into the top flight. The following season he played in 36 of their 38 SPFL matches.

On July 31, he emerged as a target for the Imps, with a club-record bid being planned. Michael Appleton admitted he was aware of the player, although it seemed any move may depend on the exit of Tayo Edun, at the time linked with Peterborough and Luton.

On 7 August 2021, Robson scored the only goal of the game as Dundee United’s won 1–0 against defending league champions Rangers, ending the latter’s 40-match unbeaten run in the competition. He was named Man of the Match by the BBC.

On August 31, transfer deadline day, Robson penned a deal with the Imps as Tayo Edun departed for Blackburn Rovers.

However, the left-back struggled to settle at Sincil Bank, and spent much of his first season on the bench. He started 30 League One matches in 18 months, but didn’t register a goal during his brief tenure. He did conjure up two assists in the Papa John’s Trophy group stages, but Harry Boyes’ arrival at the club signalled the end.

On January 6th 2023, he signed for Forest Green Rovers for an undisclosed fee.
