Alan Brazil has claimed that an Ibrox director had to be restrained from confronting Rod Stewart at Hampden on Sunday.

The veteran singer recently completed some dates at the Glasgow SEC and made sure that he was back in the city to see the first trophy of the season decided.

Taking a short break from his busy touring schedule Stewart made the most of the Hampden hospitality- and Celtic’s smash and grab victory.

At the final whistle the cheers, relief and joy were incredible with Brazil, who wasn’t at the match, sharing a colourful story from Hampden as reported by The Sun:

The TalkSPORT Host said: “Rod is a big pal and pal of the station. By all accounts after the final at the weekend at Hampden. Rod went into the directors box and he had had a few.

“I’m not saying he was hammered but he’d had a few. Celtic won the cup. Rangers played very, very well but lost. And Rod by all accounts lay on his back on the floor in the directors box in the lounge rubbing his tummy laughing and giggling saying: ‘You just can’t beat us can you?’

“One of the Rangers officials, I think it was his son, went for him. He had to be grabbed and pulled back. It all kicked off in the directors lounge by all accounts. So Rod, be careful what you are doing.”

Douglas and Graham Park are directors of the Ibrox club and also enjoy a long business relationship with Celtic supplying the club with coach travel. No directors names were mentioned during Brazil’s story.

At the 2017 Scottish Cup draw Stewart turned in a very memorable performance after enjoying some hospitality at the Albion Rovers v Celtic Scottish Cup tie.
