Roberts arrived at the club from Greek side Panianios in August 1999 and has since made over 200 appearances for the Merseyside outfit.
"I'm especially delighted that Gareth has signed," Rovers boss Brian Little (pictured) told the club's official website.
"Since I've been at the club, Gareth has progressed by being part of the Welsh squad which is great for him and, therefore, it's a very significant re-signing.
"It goes without saying that there has been a fair amount of interest from other clubs but the fact that he wants to be here and be part of what we're trying to put together is really pleasing.
"I think the signing of Gareth might just speed the last few decisions up. It will be a big boost to all the lads who are at the club that he has decided to stay, so it's great news.
"He's a smashing player, who has done well for me and his versatility has been very important for us.
"He and David Beresford down the left have done very well, so I'm absolutely delighted."
Roberts has joined Simon Haworth, Ian Goodison, David Beresford and Theodore Whitmore in signing for Rovers in the past month.
