Rod replied: “Aw give the Celtic the goal, I’d still have thousands of women throwing their knickers up.”

The rock legend went on to joke of how the last time he had underwear thrown on stage was by his wife, Penny Lancaster, 49. 

He explained: “Last time that happened I was singing away in las vegas and a pair of men’s grey underpants came up and they were really horrible.

“It was my wife who threw them up, she hid in the audience and threw a pair of men’s undies up.”

Rod and Penny have been married for 14 years having tied the knot back in 2007.

The couple welcomed daughter Renée and son Liam but after 16 years announced they had separated.

However, while they hit it off, Rod didn’t call Penny for six months as he was getting over a break up at the time.

Opening up on his marriage to his third wife Penny, Rod spoke of how he thought he would never marry again after his two previous marriages.

While appearing together on Loose Women where Penny is a regular panellist they spoke of whether Rod initially wanted more children with Penny.

Talking to Rod, Penny said: “I think initially you thought that was the end of the road for you – -no more marriages, no more children.

“So I let that kind of … until you were ready to change your mind.”

Rod then went on to say: “I had just come out of a marriage and it hurt as you all probably know and I needed a lot of time.

“I really did I swore I was never getting married again, but this one is irresistible look at that face.”
