Rod Stewart surprises Glasgow punters with singalong in pub after Celtic game

Rod Stewart delighted punters and musicians with a singalong in a Glasgow pub.

The 79-year-old rocker was in high spirits following Celtic's win at Hampden on Saturday. The Parkhead side made it through to the Scottish cup final on penalties following a 3-3 draw with Aberdeen after extra time.

The star stopped by Murphy's bar in Merchant City following the match and was filmed belting out a rendition to his hit song Maggie May alongside Scottish country star Kevin McGuire.


The moment was captured in a TikTok video as crowds cheered and gathered round at the popular Irish bar.

Celtic-folk and rock band Johnny Mac, who have previously had the honour of touring alongside Rod himself previously, were also singing alongside the icon as Kevin played the guitar.

Kevin later shared a clip from one of the revellers on his TikTok page, as his fans flooded to the comments to share their excitement for him. One person wrote: "Kevin what a surreal moment, so happy for you."
