Robbie Savage (born Wrexham, 18 October 1974) is a professional football, who is currently playing for Blackburn Rovers. He also plays for the Welsh national team.

He started his playing career as a trainee at Manchester United, but was released and moved to Crewe Alexandra's Academy, learning his craft under Dario Gradi. He was transferred to Leicester City F.C. in July 1997. Savage spent 5 years at Leicester where he made his name, winning 2 League Cups, as part of Martin O'Neill's successful side. He earned his debut cap for the Welsh international team. When Leicester were relegated from the Premiership at the end of the 2001-02 season he transferred to Birmingham City. At the beginning of January 2005 he submitted a written request for a transfer, allegedly wishing to be nearer his ailing parents in Wrexham, although Blackburn Rovers is actually further away from Wrexham than Birmingham. On January 19 Savage completed his move to Ewood Park.

His style as a midfield player is all action and energetic, and he regularly collects yellow cards. He tends to be hated by opponents of his team yet admired by his own supporters. He received his first-ever (and so far only) red card in international competition, when he was sent off in Wales' World Cup qualification match against Northern Ireland in September 2004 for a tackle which on later review proved a harsh decision. He was ridiculed for threatening to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights over the decision.

He is presently not being selected for the Welsh national team by manager, John Toshack, after a spat between the two.

He is known for his quick temper and eccentric behaviour. A recent example of his quick temper was his diagreement with Rio Ferdinand after his teams 2-1 loss to Manchester United in the Carling Cup, there was a incident in the tunnel at half time, it was not clear what happened and neither player was charged. One extremely famous incident of his eccentric behaviour was while he played for Leicester. In an incident to become known and "Poogate" he used the referee's toilet during a game, after being subsituted. He claimed he had an upset stomach, the F.A. charged him but he was not fined or banned for the misdemeanour.
