Glasgow Celtic footballer, Leigh Griffiths, has agreed to send a pair of signed football boots to a young Derry boy in time for Christmas.

A father from Culmore contacted Griffiths over social networking site Twitter because he wanted to buy his son the same football boots worn by Griffiths for Christmas

The father said his son idolises the 26 year-old Scottish international hence the reason he wanted to find out what brand of boots he wore.

Griffiths told the father he wore Nike Mercurial Vapor boots but in another tweet he said to send on his address and “I’ll get the wee man a signed pair for Xmas.”
