BIG-HEARTED Celtic superman and CQN’er Rod Stewart has donated cash to a fund set up after a Sevco Rangers fan died in a supporters’ coach crash at the weekend.

The rock star was one of the first to make a contribution to the fundraising drive in memory of Ryan Baird, 39, after getting in touch with Richard Gough.
The former Ibrox skipper said: “As soon as it happened, Rod got in touch with me and said as soon as a fund was set up I was to let him know. Which I did.
“He made a contribution, which is fantastic, and which I have thanked him for. He is a good man.”
In Rod’s message to Gough, he said: “At sad times like this we are one big football loving family. RS (Celtic).”
Supporters of the Ibrox club have been reacting to Rod’s gesture. Here are a selection of comments…
“Well done Rod Stewart. He loves his football and following his team so will have great empathy for Ryan Baird and his family. Tragic events such as this transcend football rivalry for the vast majority of people, whatever team they happen to support.”
