Rodger started with his home town club Dundee in May 1903. He went south to try his luck with Second Division Manchester United in April 1904 but did not make the first team. In September 1904 he signed with First Division Preston North End, where he scored one goal in five League appearances. In July 1906 he moved to Second Division Grimsby Town, where he scored thirteen times in thirty-four League games and also played twice in the F.A. Cup. He moved to Non-League Reading in June 1907 and went from Elm Park to Southern League Brighton and Hove Albion in February 1908. When Brighton Manager Frank Scott-Walford left to Manage Leeds City Rodger followed Frank Scott-Walford to Elland Road in May 1908 along with Dickie Joynes, Jimmy Burnett, David Dougal and William McDonald. He scored four goals in twenty-five League games in his one season stay at Leeds before returning to Scotland to finish his football career. David Dougal had a parallel career to Rodger and played at Preston, Grimsby, Reading, Brighton and Leeds.
