Rod Stewart Cries as Celtic Defeat Barcelona

[VIDEO] Rod gets a bit emotional after Celtic's astounding victory.

Celtic's miraculous Champions League victory against Barcelona last night prompted a rapturous celebration from the fans in attendance, but none were more moved than Rod Stewart.

Following Celtic's historic 2-1 victory, the camera caught the singer in an emotional embrace with a friend, holding a handkerchief to his eyes whilst making no effort to conceal his joy. It's said that real men cry in public, but I'm not so sure whether real men also carry around handkerchiefs.

Celtic went 2-0 up in the 83rd minute with goals from Wanyama and Watt, with Lionel Messi scoring a consolation goal in extra time to make it 2-1. Celtic now sit just below leaders Barcelona in their group with 7 points from 4 games, hosting Spartak Moscow in the final fixture of the group stages before hopefully heading to the knockout rounds.
