Sir Rod Stewart has hung up his football boots after injuring his ankle.

The 76-year-old singer said his ankle had never fully recovered from a tackle by his teenage son Alastair.


Sir Rod told The Scottish Sun: “My football days are over.

“I have a bad ankle injury which I suffered from being tackled by my 15-year-old son.

“I can still kick a ball when needed though.”

Football crazy Sir Rod has followed Glasgow Celtic for many years.

He has a full sized pitch at his Essex home and another at his Los Angeles mansion.

In the past Sir Rod has blamed the rock-hard US pitch for his injuries.

Last October he had a successful knee replacement operation.

He said: “I’m suffering for it now.

“When this is all done, I should have a nice straight leg and should be able to run.”
