As he’s demonstrated several times in the recent past, Steven Naismith is a jolly good egg.
Indeed, the Everton forward’s latest incredibly generous gesture has seen him lay on a complimentary Christmas dinner for hundreds of homeless people in Glasgow.
Naismith agreed to sponsor an annual meal that was organised by national homeless charity Loaves and Fishes, which seeks to provide support for those unfortunate enough to be sleeping rough on city streets.

Speaking about his commitment to extra-curricular charity work in the past, Naismith said:
It is more about what it does for the people in the community.
If it helps them and my work goes unnoticed then I’m not bothered, it is about what it does for them.
It is more about what is achieves than how it makes me feel.
Excellent stuff. Does he know he’s coming perilously close to giving professional footballers a good name?
