The Hoops superfan sent his 'congrats' to his beloved team and fellow supporters following their championship win today
But the 75-year-old sent a big "congrats" from him and young sons Aiden and Alastair to their beloved team, who have now won the coveted trophy nine times in a row.
He said: "Congrats the Celtic family. 9 in a row! Proud Stewart bhoys @celticfc#9inarow "
Celtic were crowned title winners after an SPFL board meeting on Monday after a two-hour-long conference.
SIR Rod Stewart helped raise almost £600,000 for the NHS by auctioning off some of his personal mementoes.
The singer joined fellow celebrities in handing over memorabilia including a signed Celtic top, a Cartier watch, a photo of him collecting his knighthood and clothes for the fundraiser organised by radio DJ Chris Evans.
The online auction was held to raise money for Scrubs Glorious Scrubs, a voluntary sewing collaborative making non-surgical scrubs for NHS workers during the Covid-19 crisis.
One bidder paid £100,000 to attend a lunch hosted by Stewart and wife Penny Lancaster in London with food cooked by top chef Angela Hartnett.
The Cartier watch was auctioned for more than £17,000 while the Celtic shirt fetched £6,000. The auction as a whole raised £596,667.

When asked about what he was missing most during quarantine, he said: 'It's pretty obvious, the football and the pubs!
'But we are very lucky. We've got an indoor pool, we've got a football pitch - we've got everything we need - 54 acres.
'So I am, thank god, very lucky and I've got four of my children staying with me.'
Rod, who was born in an air raid shelter in 1945, had originally been isolating with his family at their mansion in Florida but has since jetted back to his home in Essex, where he was also joined by daughter Renee, 27.
'A SMALL GIFT'
A GENEROUS Sir Rod Steward sent a cheque for £5000 to a fan as a “small gift to help with rough times” - along with a signed photo.
Natasha Jenkins shared the surprise gift online this morning after discovering the incredible package in the morning post.
She wrote: “So the post has just been delivered.
“I've had a signed poster from Mr Rod Stewart....
“And this..... I am absolutely gobsmacked and cannot believe how nice and generous he is.”
The photo shows a signed photo of Sir Rod in a crisp white shirt and jacket with a red and blue tie slung round his neck.
On it Sir Rod has written: “Hi Natasha, a small gift to help you through rough times, Rod Stewart X”
Tucked underneath the poster, the photo shows the corner of a cheque for £5,000 dated on 5th May.
Friends and family were quick to comment on the gift with one saying: “Wow, that’s amazing Tash, you do deserve it and what a lovely gesture from him.”
The rocker has decided to sell some of his personal possessions in a bid to raise money
Among the lots is a Hoops jersey commemorating the 50th anniversary of the club’s European Cup triumph in 1967.
The singing star signed the top and wrote “Celtic the pride of Scotland”.
Rod has put some of his gladrags up for auction as well, including jackets and shoes worn on stage or on hit album covers.
Wife Penny Lancaster shared pictures of the sought-after items on her Instagram.
The Maggie May singer is also giving away an expensive Cartier watch.
The auction goes live today and anyone interested should go online to bidinauction.com to register.
Bidding closes on Friday 8th at midnight.
