A video has emerged of Rod Stewart leading the Celtic board of directors as he sings Grace.

It’s not sure when the video was made but it could have been in Rome last week when the singer was over to watch Celtic’s 2-1 win over Lazio in the Europa League.

Chairman Ian Bankier and chief executive Peter Lawwell can both be seen singing in the video with the song brought into Celtic Park by the Green Brigade three years ago.

Grace tells the story of the brief marriage between Joseph Plunkett and Grace Gifford in Kilmainham Jail in 1916 shortly before Plunkett was executed.

The song has been regularly been played over the PA system at Celtic Park with Stewart including the song on his latest album.

Last week in the Stadio Olympico the song could be heard being sung by Celtic’s 10,000 strong travelling support as they roared Neil Lennon’s side on to a famous victory.
