Celtic hearts be free tonight. After beating Barca, time is on your side.

Celtic's stunning 2-1 victory over mighty Barcelona on Wednesday night in Group G of the UEFA Champions League produced several stirring images. First, there was the glorious, giant mosaic in the stands before the match.

Then, after the final whistle, we saw Rod Stewart.

Yep, that Rod Stewart. The pop singer who's famous for classics like "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" and "Maggie May" is also a well-known Celtic supporter (he put a reference to the club in his song "You're In My Heart"). If you don't believe it, just watch the video.

Stewart, 67, was in attendance Wednesday night at Celtic Park as Celtic produced what The Guardian calls "one of the finest results in the club's European history." Considering the fact that Celtic won the 1967 European Cup and finished as runners-up three years later, that's quite a statement.

But Stewart's heartfelt reaction would seem to reinforce the idea. This was a big victory for Celtic, and it meant the world to their supporters.

The video of Stewart's tears of joy appears above. It's our Set Piece Video of the Day. Enjoy.

If you missed it, you can relive the whole night here in this video. Now, let's hope the success continues for Celtic, if only so we can see some more celebrity cameos.
