The Time Rod Stewart Was Accused Of Being Drunk During Scottish Cup Draw

Who remembers when Rod Stewart was the star of the show during the Scottish Cup fifth round draw?

The iconic rock star was the special guest as the SFA did the draw for the next round of the competition at the Excelsior Stadium after Celtic's 3-0 win over Albion Rovers and it was perhaps one of the funniest moments of 2017.

He was joined by Alan Stubbs, who was Sky Sports' guest alongside regular host David Tanner and pundit Neil McCann.

As you can see, this video of Stewart's performance has proven popular on Twitter and it should continue to do so for the rest of the day.

The well-known Celtic fan was seen in the stands taking in the game as Brendan Rodgers' men beat Albion Rovers 3-0 to set up a fifth round clash with Inverness.

Many people on Twitter were hoping that Steward would make a brief appearance during the World Cup draw on Friday afternoon, but unfortunately for millions around the world, this was not the case.
