Nobody has ever had more fun at a cup draw than Rod Stewart did on Sunday evening.

The 72-year-old singer was tasked, along with former Celtic player Alan Stubbs, with drawing the ties for the fifth round of the Scottish Cup live on Sky Sports.


He did so with enthusiasm, perhaps aided by the local hospitality facilities. Stewart had been in attendance as Celtic had beaten Albion Rovers 3-0 in the cup just minutes beforehand.

The draw was a performance from Stewart, turning the usual humdrum cup draw into a real spectacle.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers gave Stewart's involvement his seal of approval. Stewart drawing Celtic at home for a tie against Inverness certainly didn't hurt.

One of the best cup draws I’ve ever seen.

He looked happy. It must have been because we won.

I thought he was very good. He pulled us out a home draw, so obviously very happy.

He is certainly entertaining, on stage and off stage. I think most people had a chuckle at it.
