Football clubs are to of­fer fes­tive cheer for el­derly folk in their com­mu­ni­ties.

Dundee United, Hearts, Hibs, Mon­trose, Partick This­tle and St Mir­ren will host Christmas Day din­ner.

More than 30 other teams, in­clud­ing Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen, Ar­broath and El­gin City, are host­ing sim­i­lar events on other days.

Most of the din­ners are sup­ported by SPFL Trust’s Fes­tive Friends ini­tia­tive.

Nicky Reid, CEO of the SPFL Trust, said:“To be able to of­fer a mem­o­rable day to older peo­ple who will likely spend Christmas Day alone is a spe­cial thing for us.”
