Ríkharður started his career in Fram Reykjavik, and later moved to KR where he became top goalscorer in the Úrvalsdeild in 1996 with 14. His KR career was interrupted by an unsuccessful spell in Greek football with Kalamata. In 1998, he moved to Norwegian club Viking, and after scoring at least 15 goals three seasons in a row he was signed by English club Stoke City in the summer of 2000. Stoke were at the time under the control of an Icelandic board and Ríkharður was one of a number fellow countrymen at join up at the Britannia Stadium, Stoke had to wait until the Norwegian finished before Ríkharður could join them and he made a great start scoring the winning goal against Barnsley with his first touch.
He failed to build on such a good start and scored seven more goals in 2000–01 and became more used by Guðjón Þórðarson as a substitute. He scored four goals in 13 matches in 2001–02 and was released by the club at the end of the season. He returned to Norway and played for Lillestrøm and Fredrikstad before ending his career with a return to Fram.
Ríkharður made his debut for Iceland in a May 1991 friendly against Malta as a substitute for Grétar Einarsson. He played his last international match in 2003, having been capped 44 times and scoring 14 goals. Ríkharður scored a legendary goal against France, then recent World Cup Champions, on 5 September 1998. The game ended with a 1–1 draw.
