Touching moment Glasgow Warriors players visit youngster in hospital for Christmas song performance

A TOUCHING video shows Glasgow Warriors players paying a visit to a youngster in hospital for a performance of some Christmas song classics.

Several players from the Scotstoun Stadium outfit paid a visit to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow yesterday where they met Kallie, a cancer fighter who is a patient at the hospital.

The tough rugby players were soon put through their paces by brave young Kallie though, who kept them right as they had a festive singsong by her bedside.

The heartwarming footage shows Warriors players led by scrum-half George Horne, who stand at the end of Kallie’s hospital bed.

The youngster appears to be buttering a cracker as a man – presumably a parent – sits by her side, filming the moment with his phone.

Horne counts down the quartet as they burst into a rendition of When Santa Got Stuck Up the Chimney – albeit with a few muddled words here and there.

The song ends and the team can be heard clapping – but Kallie grins and decides she wants a more recognisable carol.

She stretches out her hands and cheekily asks: “What about Jingle Bells?”

The Warriors laugh and agree to an encore before bursting into song again – this time with all the lyrics remembered.

Kallie jigs along in her bed and sings along with the team who finish up the well-known festive song to a round of applause.

Kallie, satisfied with the performance this time, lets out a small cheer and looks at the man by her side, who asks: “Any good?”

Kallie looks over at him and nods her head with a smile before going back to butter her cracker.

One of the Warriors can be heard joking: “Not bad.”

The touching moment warmed the hearts of many fans. (C) @
