LIFELONG Celtic fan Sir Rod Stewart will headline a charity evening paying tribute to the Lisbon Lions.
The champions are holding a live event to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the side becoming the first British team to lift the European Cup.
Jock Stein’s team, with goals from Tommy Gemmell and Stevie Chalmers, defeated Inter Milan 2-1 in the 1967 final in the Portuguese capital for the most famous results in the club’s glittering history.
The concert will be held on Thursday, May 25 – exactly half-a-century to the European triumph – at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro. Proceeds from the event will go to the Celtic FC Foundation.
Sir Rod will perform a short set of his most famous songs and will top a bill of “special guests from the world of football, music and entertainment”, including opera singer Russell Watson, Les McKeown’s Legendary Bay City Rollers and Eddi Reader.
Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will share his memories of Celtic’s triumph and tribute will be paid to legendary manager Stein and his players, all of whom were born within 30 miles of Celtic Park.
