Paul Anderson equalised for Ipswich after Jonny Howson gave the visitors the lead.

Watching the game at home, Morgan got rather excited by Anderson's goal and accidentally punched a hole in his ceiling.

I've just punched a whole in my ceiling when we scored!!! Do I care? No! #itfc #coyb

Posting the pictures on Twitter, Morgan claimed he didn't care about the damage.

But he still sent the pictures to Anderson and was rather surprised when the player responded, offering to pay to fix it.

@rossmorgan1989 tell me how much to fix it and I'll pay it mate 👍🏻

The pair then proceeded to have a conversation on Twitter about Anderson's kind offer.

@P18NDO you sir are an absolute hero. I will try and fix it myself. You deserve every penny of that goal bonus!!! You were superb! #itfc

@rossmorgan1989 seriously let me know. It's my fault haha

@P18NDO I will do mate. Thank you for today! You have made it. Fucked ceiling or not. #hero #itfc #weloveyouandowedo
