Derry man, Joe Doran, contacted Griffiths over social networking site Twitter because he wanted to buy his son the same football boots worn by Griffiths for Christmas

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