Several Sheffield Wednesday fans have been praising Liam Palmer after footage emerged on social media of the defender helping a mascot prior to Scotland’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Cyprus.
In the video, it shows the right-back tying the youngster’s shoelaces for him as the two sides lined up in the tunnel before the game in Nicosia.
The 28-year-old was starting his third fixture in a row for Scotland and is becoming a regular pick under manager Steve Clarke (Transfermarkt).
He helped the Scots win the game 2-1, with goals from Ryan Christie and John McGinn coming either side of Georgios Efrem’s equaliser to give them all three points (BBC Sport).
It was actually a dead rubber with neither side able to secure automatic qualification for next summer’s tournament, although Scotland can still make it via the play-offs so getting into a winning habit is crucial for them.
After seeing the footage of Palmer being very helpful towards the young mascot, several Sheffield Wednesday fans were quick to praise his act of kindness with many suggesting it shows how good a person he is.
Here is what some had to say…
A simple act like that says a lot about the man. UTO
