Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield has sent an encouraging message to a young boy who is hosting a fundraiser for his auntie.

Four-year-old Alfie Hadden, from East Kilbride, is running a 5k mini-marathon to raise funds for muscular dystrophy, a muscle-weakening disease which has auntie Emma has.

Arfield has been described as the four-year-old’s “hero” and you can see in Alfie’s reaction how much the message means.

 

It’s also a testament to the character of Scott Arfield, who has previously donated match-worn shirts for charitable causes such as the Chris Mitchell Foundation.

The midfielder also raised £9k for the NHS by raffling off his match worn shirt from one of the matches against Braga.

But it’s little Alfie who’s the real hero and if anyone can they’re being encouraged to donate a small fee to help raise money for this very worthwhile cause.
