Rod Stewart Broke Down Crying After Celtic's Epic Win over Barcelona

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterJanuary 10, 2017

Well, I hope you are happy, Celtic. You went and made Rod Stewart cry. 

Of course you are happy. There is no doubt in my mind that it will take years to wipe the smiles off each supporter's faces. 

After taking down the mighty Catalans in a Champions League fixture on Wednesday, Celtic fans were riding high. 

Some were so high, in fact, that they let their emotions flood from their eyes in the form of joyous tears. Take ol' Rod Stewart here as an example. 

The man has crooned hit tunes such as "Have I Told You Lately" and "Forever Young," making catharsis sort of his deal. It's kind of what this guy does for a living. 

Yet his most emotionally-stirring moment may be this shedding of tears. 

As Yahoo Sports reports, the momentous victory over Barcelona, 2-1, came at the perfect time, making it impossible for any fan to not get swept up emotionally.

"A day after celebrating their 125th anniversary, Celtic earned what is being hailed as one of the club's greatest ever victories in a 2-1 Champions League win against Barcelona."

The big, bad Spanish Giants were supposed to ease through the fixture, but instead came up short, leaving all in Celtic Park with a huge piece of history and a moment they wouldn't forget. 

Even the famous get a bit weepy at times.
