One Direction's Niall looks adorable in the old snap

Niall Horan has always been a huge football fan.

The One Direction singer’s older brother Greg shared a super-cute childhood snap of Niall, 20, at their club Derby County‘s home ground Pride Park on Twitter yesterday.

Greg‘s sweet picture sees Irish Niall smiling happily in the stands while dressed in a green soccer shirt, jogging bottoms and a cap.

‘There u go guys Niall at pride park a long time ago derby county through and through Dcfc COYRS,’ Tweeted Greg, 27.

This isn’t the first time in recent days that Greg‘s had a rifle through the family’s photo albums – at the weekend, he uploaded two vintage shots of Niall.

One saw the Mullingar-born star playing outside as a toddler while the other showed him posing on a toy digger with his sibling, who he’s very close to.

Directioners think Greg‘s latest post is absolutely adorable.

‘PERFECT OMGGGGGGGGGGG,’ Tweeted one.

Another wrote: ‘god bless you for these photos we are lucky to have you.’
