Rod Stewart foots fans’ beer bill

Rod Stewart was left with a hefty bar tab after offering to buy fans a drink at Gordon Ramsay’s pub in Las Vegas, if they came wearing a Celtic FC shirt.

The 70-year-old star invited his “mates” to the bar to celebrate the close of his fourth run at the Collosseum on Sunday at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, posting a message a week prior to the concert on Twitter to his 227,000 fans.

“To celebrate a very successful @CaesarsPalace run, after Sunday’s show, wear a @celticfc shirt to Gordon Ramsays Pub & I’ll buy you a beer”, wrote Stewart.

The only condition to getting a pint off Stewart and meeting the icon in person, was that fans arrived wearing the colours of his football team, Celtic FC, and had attended his show earlier that night with a ticket stub to prove it.

Dozens of fans took Stewart up on the offer arriving at the Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill in green and white jerseys, with videos of the spontaneous bash circulating on Twitter.

Stewart’s choice of venue was deliberate as chef Ramsay used to be a Rangers trialist, a rival team to the Celtics.

Thanks to @rodstewart it’s free drinks at @GordonRamsay‘s #GRPub for anyone in a @celticfc jersey tonight! — Caesars Palace (@CaesarsPalace) August 17, 2015
