Career

On 31 January 2022, Anderson joined League Two side Bristol Rovers on loan until the end of the 2021–22 season. He made his debut on 5 February, impressing off of the bench in a 1–1 draw at Sutton United. Anderson opened his account for the club, scoring the first league goal of his career, with the second in a 4–0 away win at Stevenage before assisting namesake Harry Anderson for the third four minutes later in a performance that was rated 9/10 by local media outlet Bristol Live. Following a 1–0 victory over Colchester United in which Anderson scored the only goal of the game, his third goal for the club and scoring for a second consecutive match, manager and former Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton compared Anderson’s style of play to that of Diego Maradona. 

Anderson was awarded the League Two Goal of the Month award for March 2022 for his impressive solo run and finish against Harrogate Town, receiving 50% of the public vote. On 7 May 2022, Anderson was awarded the EFL Young Player of the Month Award for April 2022 after three goals and two assists in six matches left Rovers close to an automatic promotion spot, later winning the EFL League Two Player of the Month Award too. That same day, in the final league match of the season, Anderson scored Rovers’ final goal in the 85th minute of a 7–0 thrashing of Scunthorpe United, this goal moving Rovers above Northampton Town on a goals-scored basis into the final automatic promotion spot, the club returning to League One at the first time of asking.

Return to Newcastle and breakthrough

On 21 September 2022, Anderson’s breakthrough into the first team was rewarded with a new long-term contract. On 26 February 2023, he came off the bench in the 91st minute of the 2023 EFL Cup final defeat to Manchester United. He was controversially denied a first Newcastle goal on 17 March 2023 when his back-post header was ruled out by VAR. A decision described as “bizarre”, while former referee Dermot Gallagher clarified with evidence that no offside law had been broken.

International career

Born in England, Anderson is of Scottish descent with a grandmother on his father’s side born in Glasgow and later residing in Whitley Bay. He was a youth international for Scotland at U16, U17 & U18 level. He switched his allegiance back to England in March 2021, making his debut in a friendly against Arsenal U23s on 27 March 2021. Anderson was selected for the Scotland under-21 squad in November 2021. Anderson received a second call-up for the Scotland U21 squad in March 2022, instead opting to remain with his loan club Bristol Rovers. Anderson made his Scotland under-21 debut on 5 June as they held group leaders Belgium to a 0–0 draw. He withdrew from a later Scotland under-21 squad, as he wanted to keep other representative options open.

In August 2023, Anderson received his first call-up to the Scotland national team by head coach Steve Clarke, for a UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying match against Cyprus and a friendly against England.
