Rovers moved to sign this experienced midfielder in February 2013 on a free transfer.

Williamson started his career with Mansfield Town, making over 150 appearances in five years with the Stags before joining Northampton Town in September 2004.

A spell with Rotherham United soon followed before he made the move to Premier League club Watford in January 2007, going on to play over 75 games during his two-and-a-half years with the Hornets.

Sheffield United secured the midfielder's services in the summer of 2009, where he scored an impressive 19 goals in 89 appearances.

Former manager Michael Appleton brought Williamson to Portsmouth on a short-term deal, before returning to secure his services for Rovers.

A constant performer in central midfield, Williamson penned a new one-year deal in July 2015.
