Twitter has gone wild after Sir Rod Stewart appeared to be exuberantly enjoying himself during the Scottish Cup draw.

Stewart was invited to conduct the draw alongside Alan McRae, the president of the SFA and Alan Stubbs, the former Hibernian manager.

The “Do You Think I’m Sexy” singer shouted the numbers as he drew them and gave a cheer when his team, Celtic, were drawn.

Stewart was in charge of drawing home teams and did so in flamboyant style.

The popstar's antics led to Stubbs being so distracted he called out the wrong number when announcing who would face Celtic.

Footage of the draw began circulating on social media with many users speculating whether Stewart was under the influence of alcohol.

Many Twitter users enjoyed Stewart's behaviour and one described it as the “highlight of 2017 so far”.

Others were not so enthusiastic about his performance and said it was “disrespectful” to Scottish football.

Dunfermline v Hamilton
