Liverpool and Scotland star Andy Robertson is believed to be the football player behind a major donation that helped keep six food banks in Glasgow and the surrounding areas running.
Glasgow NE Foodbank shared their gratitude to a “Scottish footballer” who donated a large sum to the food banks last week.
They wrote on Twitter: “Thanks to the Scottish footballer who donated a large sum to the food banks, including us. Without the support of generous individuals we would struggle. We cannot thank him enough.”
The Times have since claimed that Robertson is thought to be the player behind the donation.
According to the newspaper, the 26-year-old is extremely committed to charity work but prefers to carry out his efforts to improve the lives of others without publicity.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has affected many locals and Liverpool defender Robertson’s act of generosity will help food banks provide for those struggling as a result of the health crisis.
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— GlasgowNEfoodbank (@GlasgowNE) March 18, 2020
As well as Glasgow NE Foodbank, Robertson donated to Glasgow SW Foodbank, Glasgow NW Foodbank, Glasgow SE Foodbank, Rutherglen & Cambuslang Foodbank and East Renfrewshire Foodbank.
Ibrox-based Glasgow SW Foodbank tweeted: “It’s an amazing gift and we are so grateful.”
