American rapper Coolio tapped a ticket to the Celtic v Hibs match from Tommy Sheridan then ended up making the half-time draw and enjoying a lap of honour.
With the sun shining and Neil Lennon back in town there was a relaxed atmosphere on the Celtic Way as a sell-out crowd came to salute the team that won 3-0 away to Anderlecht in midweek.
Sheridan had put out a request for two tickets and settled down to watch the match from the South Stand after posing for pictures with numerous fans outside the ground.
I’ve just watched Coolio shouting Hail Hail on Celtic TV and commenting on the quality of the pitch. Have perhaps entered parallel universe pic.twitter.com/ecoXR7wGAx

The feel good factor was evident all around with some pleasant September sunshine for the fans to enjoy on the back of three well received away wins.
With Rod Stewart and three of his sons also in attendance Callum McGregor opened the scoring for Celtic early in the first half but it took a late equaliser from the same player to earn Celtic a 2-2 draw.
With interest in the club reaching new heights tickets for the Champions League clash with Bayern Munich at the end of October are certain to be in massive demand.
