Video: John McGinn Dresses Up as Santa to Surprise a Family of Hibees

John McGinn showed he’s got bags of Christmas spirit this week, as he surprised a family of Hibs fans during a trip to Hampden.

Dad, Dean Reilly is a tireless charity fundraiser and has ran seven marathons since being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

However, Dean’s family home was targeted by thieves last month and several valuables including his son’s mini Scottish Cup replica were taken during the raid.

In a bid to boost their spirits, the SFA arranged for the family to visit the national team’s stadium “for an evening they wouldn’t forget.”

Little did the Reilly’s realise that Hibs midfielder McGinn was waiting in the wings to surprise them… behind a very convincing disguise:

McGinn went on to present youngsters, Michael and Aiden, with signed Scotland jerseys and posed for a photo.

The 23-year-old has been in fine form for Neil Lennon’s team so far this season, scoring three goals and providing two assists, with Hibs sitting in fourth place in the table, just a point behind Rangers.
