ALBION ROVERS will welcome Celtic fan Rod Stewart on Sunday, but chairman Ronnie Boyle is hoping the singer won’t be smiling after the Scottish Cup-tie.
The part-timers have arranged a late ticket for the veteran rock star for the fourth round game at Airdrie’s Excelsior Stadium.
Boyd said: “I have to be careful what I say here because my wife and daughter are both Celtic season-ticket holders and their wish is we get a draw – and Celtic go on to win the treble.
“But, if we win, I will be delighted. We have Rod Stewart plus two coming to the match.
“We’d heard the rumour on Facebook but Celtic confirmed it with us today that he is coming. It adds to the glamour of the occasion.
“Am I a fan of Rod Stewart? I liked his early stuff! I suppose he gives us A Reason To Believe obviously. I could go on?
“I’ve been to see him in concert. It was in Glasgow a long time ago. We will make him very welcome when he comes to the game.
“Will I be hoping for a repeat of Rod’s tears after Celtic beat Barcelona in 2012?

“We will treat Rod with the utmost respect and, hopefully, it will be a great day.
“We are going for the victory and if Rod is disappointed at the end of the game, then that is just one of those things.”
