In recent years, Everton midfielder Steven Naismith has earned a reputation for acts of kindness for those in need.

With winter setting in, the Scotland international has been doing what he can to help and this week he has paid for hundreds of Christmas lunches for homeless people in Glasgow and Liverpool.

The former Rangers player was also on hand in person at Glasgow charity Loaves and Fishes to help out, telling The Big Issue: "This is something I look forward to every year. It's the start of Christmas for me. It's brilliant to come and get a banter with some great characters - they tell it is how it is, some saying I'm a good footballer and others that think the opposite - and I'm happy that I can help."
