The Scottish foodbank GlasgowNE tweeted on March 18th, thanking an unnamed Scottish footballer, believed to be Andy Robertson of Liverpool, for his generous donation, as seen in the tweet below.
Thanks to the Scottish footballer who donated a large sum to the following food banks, including us; @GSWfoodbank @Glasgow_NW_FB @GlasgowSEFBank @CR_Foodbank and East Renfrewshire Foodbank. Without the support of generous individuals we would struggle. We cannot thank him enough

Andy Robertson who earns £60,000-a-week wages at Liverpool has also ensured that other such foodbanks namely Glasgow NW Foodbank, Glasgow SW Foodbank, Glasgow SE Foodbank, Rutherglen & Cambuslang Foodbank and East Renfrewshire Foodbank can continue operation during the Coronavirus crisis in Scotland.
