This Christmas period is really bringing out the best in the football community.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has already announced that he will spend Christmas morning with sick children at a hospice in Northern Ireland and now Rio Ferdinand has done his part to help less well off youngsters.

The ex-Man United defender tweeted that he had made a donation to the Key 103 Cash for Kids charity this Christmas, with the organisation's account then revealing that Ferdinand had donated a whopping £500,000 worth of presents for disadvantaged children.

The father of three will make a lot of kids very happy this Christmas with his generous gesture.

"Christmas is a time where families want to get each other presents," Ferdinand told the Key 103 radio station.

"There are obviously people who are less fortunate than we are so we wanted to try and help them and we donated £500,000 worth of toys."
