Celtic supporters witnessed an unusual spectacle on Saturday – and not simply because they saw their side drop rare Scottish Premiership points in a 2-2 draw with Hibs at Parkhead.
American rapper Coolio was present at the venue in the East End of Glasgow and conducted the club’s half-time draw.
He was there as a guest of Tommy Sheridan, a former Scottish Socialist Party politician, who he had met during Celebrity Big Brother in 2009 and thereafter befriended.
Coolio shot to fame in 1995 when his single 'Gangsta's Paradise' reached the top of the charts in 18 different countries, including the UK and USA.
More than 20 years on, he still remains a favourite, as the Celtic Park crowd showed, although many were confused as to why he was at the game!

A double from Calum McGregor helped Celtic escape from a 2-1 deficit, with John McGinn having scored twice for the visitors.
The draw means that the Hoops are top of the Premiership table ahead of Aberdeen only on goal difference.
