Rod Stewart believes that Celtic should be given a Guard of Honour at Ibrox on Sunday.
The topic has brought about a media frenzy while most hoops fans are more worried about what sort of protection Kevin Clancy will give their players rather than being clapped onto the park by a group of serial losers.
Scott Brown, James Forrest and Mikael Lustig have amassed close to 50 winners medals to sustain them when their playing days are over which will feature more prominently than a round of applause from James Tavernier, Ryan Jack or Wes Foderingham.
Newspapers and radio stations have been seeking views of all sorts with a link to Sunday’s teams with Jim White seeking out the opinion of Celtic fan Rod.
Talking on talkSPORT, Friday, 11am Stewart said:”If the shoe was on the other foot I’d love Celtic to give a guard of honour to Rangers. I find it so childish and it’s not a good example for the kids.
“Celtic, I would be so proud if Celtic give Rangers a guard of honour if they win the title next year. I didn’t like the ticket allocation either and I was disappointed with Celtic. It’s like Michelle Obama says, they go low, we go high.”
Celtic’s players or management won’t be distracted by the Guard of Honour as they prepare for next Sunday’s SPFL presentation day followed by the Scottish Cup Final.
Despite losing their manager at the end of February the hoops remain unbeaten in 2019 with Scott Bain conceding just three domestic goals since taking over from Craig Gordon.
