Stewart Snubs Polo For Soccer Climax

Subscribe to Rod Stewart alerts

Rocker Rod Stewart ignored his girlfriend Penny Lancaster at a prestigious polo match on Sunday (25MAY03) - so he could listen to the climax of the Scottish soccer season on the radio.

The MAGGIE MAY singer is a massive CELTIC fan, and wanted to keep up with their efforts to pip RANGERS to the Scottish football league title - even though he was attending the KUONI WORLD CLASS POLO CUP in Surrey, England, with his beautiful partner.

However, a source says that the photographer/model was sympathetic towards her boyfriend's sporting fanaticism.

They say, "Penny knew how important this game was to Rod and kept asking him how it was going.

"When the matches had finished and it was confirmed Celtic had lost out, she put her arm round him to console him."

However, Rod was so upset at his team missing out he snubbed the chance to meet British royal heir Prince Charles later in the day.

"He was in a sulk so he and Penny went home instead," the source explains."
