† Appearances (Goals).
Birkir started playing football with local clubs in his hometown of Akureyri, Iceland. He joined Viking in summer of 2005 from Figgjo. In the 2006 season he scored his first goal for Viking against Hamarkameratene. Since then, he has been a constant starter for Viking, helping them avoid relegation and even manage a third place finish in 2007. In 2008, he had a successful loan spell at newly promoted Tippeligaen side Bodø/Glimt, playing a big part in them finishing fourth in the league. His impressive performances brought the attention of bigger clubs such as Serie A club Reggina in January 2008, but the Icelander stayed at Viking until 2012.
After the end of the 2011–12 season, in July 2012, he joined the newly promoted Serie A side Pescara on a season-long loan deal. He scored his first goal for Pescara in a 5–1 away defeat at Napoli. Birkir stated after the 2012-13 season that he wasn't interested to go down to Serie B with Pescara and, with two years remaining of his Standard Liege contract, he was unsure where he'd be playing in the 2013-14 season.  Pescara bought Birkir from Standard Liege in mid-June 2013 for a previously agreed fee,  with the aim of selling him for a higher amount that summer with interest from clubs in the top leagues in England, Italy and Germany.
