Williams said: “It is always nice to give something back to fans, and at Rovers we have always tried to think outside the box - I just hope he got to eat the pizza before it was too cold!”

Tiberius’ father Nathan said: “It was a great gesture from Rovers to send Andy down, showing again they are more than just a football club.”
