Andersson began his career in his native Sweden with GAIS, Brage and Örgryte, where he gained a reputation as a good penalty taker in spite of being a goalkeeper. After two seasons with Spanish club Tenerife, with whom he reached the UEFA Cup semi-finals in 1997, Andersson joined Göteborg, where he was the club's first choice goalkeeper until the 2008 season. There was some speculation that he would retire after the 2006 season, but Andersson himself stated in the official IFK magazine that he would continue for at least three more seasons. He made 194 straight appearances in the Swedish top flight, the seventh most all time. He is also one of the oldest players to ever have played in the Allsvenskan.
He finally won the Swedish league title with Göteborg, becoming a Swedish champion for the first time at the age of 41. He was the oldest footballer to ever win the Allsvenskan.
Andersson briefly retired after the 2008 season, but in May 2009 he made his comeback with his former club Örgryte, signing a three-month contract with a possible extenstion, after two of Örgryte's goalkeepers became injured.
