Rod Stewart’s bromance with Ange Postecoglou continues to blossom, with the legendary crooner revealing his plans to visit the Celtic boss’s childhood home.
Stewart, 78, will perform two concerts in Melbourne next week after starting his Australian tour in Perth this Saturday and seeing the house is high on his to-do list.
The music legend also sends Postecoglou six bottles of Aussie wine each time the Hoops beat fierce rivals Rangers in Scotland.
In an interview with 3AW radio, the pop icon labelled the Australian coach a ‘wonderful man’ before stating his desire to see where Postecoglou grew up, such is his admiration for the former Socceroos boss.
‘You must take me to see Ange’s house. That would be lovely and I’ll send him some pictures. We must arrange that,’ Stewart said.

‘What a guy he is! Football in this country [Scotland] needed a bit of dignity and he’s brought it to us. He’s a wonderful man.’
Postecoglou, 57, has been a smash hit at Celtic.
Despite initial doubts surrounding his appointment, the ex-Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory coach snared the Scottish Premiership and League Cup double in his first season in charge in 2021-22.
Celtic won the League Cup last month, play in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup this weekend and are nine points clear in the premiership as they look to secure a unique treble of silverware this campaign.
A humble Postecoglou also recently dismissed talk he will end up the club’s greatest ever manager.
It followed Stewart showering him with praise after Celtic lifted the League Cup trophy.
The man behind smash hits like Maggie May and Sailing even paid the Aussie a surprise visit at his home in Glasgow last year so he could give him a hug before a match.

‘That is very kind of Rod and I know he is a passionate Celtic man, but I will give you the brief here,’ he said.
‘I will never reach the levels of Jock Stein or Martin O’Neill. Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon, these guys, have had unbelievable success at this club.
‘It is almost impossible to replicate.
‘I know my place and I am more than happy with that. ‘My role here is to contribute and hopefully continue to bring success to this club.
‘Hopefully when I am gone I have left my own mark and I will be more than comfortable with that.’
