Sir Rod, who is a passionate Hoops fan and attended the Betfred Cup final, quickly came under fire from Celtic fans, Scottish nationals and non-Tory voters, and at the Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Hibs at Parkhead, the Green Bridgade supporters group held up a banner making their feelings known.

"Tories not welcome. F*** off Rod," read the two-part message.

The Celtic fans' group is well known for their pointed messages and slogans and in the past have aimed banners at the SNP, the police, the Scottish Government, the Celtic board, former manager Brendan Rodgers, Italian side Lazio and rivals Rangers.
