Celtic have several renowned fans. Rod Stewart is the best-known of them. Not him. One of them performed in a Celtic jersey in Switzerland before Celtic played Real Madrid.
Lewis Capaldi headlined the Baloise Session Festival in Basel, Switzerland. He wore a black Adidas Celtic shirt onstage. He has previously performed “It’s a grand old team” in front of 20,000 people at the O2 Arena.
Capaldi’s tune Someone You Loved has over 500 million YouTube views.
He was nominated for a Grammy, but he didn’t win. It won at the Brits.
Capaldi has never hidden his affection for Celtic, so it was no surprise to see him demonstrate his support before the match versus Real Madrid.
Celtic fell 5-1 to the European champions in Madrid, which must have saddened him.
Questionable officiating, poor defence, and Real Madrid’s world-class quality contributed to the crushing defeat in Madrid. Jota’s free-kick gave fans something to rejoice about, even if it was a consolation goal.
