The veteran rocker was brought in by the Scottish Football Association (SFA) to conduct the draw for the fifth round draw of the Scottish Cup on Sunday (22Jan17), alongside their president Alan MCRae and former player Alan Stubbs.

However the 72-year-old could not conceal his high spirits after watching his beloved Celtic beat Albion Rovers 3-0 to make it through before he performed the draw at the Excelsior Stadium, in Airdrie, Scotland.

Wearing a flamboyant leopard print scarf the Maggie May singer appeared to be trying to put off Stubbs and MCRae, shouting the numbers he had drawn and appearing to prod the SFA President under a podium.

He also cheered loudly when he drew Celtic's number out, giving them a home tie but audibly groaned when Stubbs paired them with Inverness Caledonian Thistle, who famously beat them in the competition in 2000.

Those viewing the draw on television were alarmed but amused by Rod's antics, joking that he may have been indulged in too many drinks while watching the game.

"Rod Stewart doing the 5th Round Scottish Cup draw is the most bizarre thing you'll see today," one Twitter user wrote, while the social media team at British bookmakers Coral Tweeted, "Fair play to Rod Stewart doing the Scottish Cup Draw after necking (drinking) 15 pints beforehand."

Others speculated that Rod would not be feeling very well the day after attending the match.

Some viewers enjoyed his eccentric performance however, with a twitter user named Amy MCDonald Tweeting, "Am still laughing at mad rod Stewart doing the the Scottish cup draw."

Rod a famous soccer fanatic, has built a full size pitch at his home in Essex, England, and often kicks soccer balls into the crowd at his concerts.
