Sir Rod Stewart has created a football training ground for his son at his lavish Essex mansion.

The legendary rocker, 77, turned the five-a-side pitch at his Epping Forest home into the official Junior Hoops training ground after his son lost training time due to the pandemic.

Friends say the singer is a huge supporter of his son’s football skills.

A friend of the musician told The Sun: “Rod is a regular at his son’s games. He is hugely passionate about his Under-12 side, and not just because they wear the same colors as his beloved Celtic. .

“Unfortunately they lost their usual ground due to the pandemic and had nowhere to train, so Rod stepped in. He opened his house to the whole team, as well as coaches and parents, to allow them to practice.

“Unfortunately they lost their usual ground due to the pandemic and had nowhere to train, so Rod stepped in. He opened his house to the whole team, as well as coaches and parents, to allow them to practice.

“Now twice a week the team shows up to play and train for their games. It means the world to Rod that he is able to do this for his son and their team.

Rod shares Aiden and son Alastair, 16, with wife Penny Lancaster.

It comes after Sir Rod showed he was in good shape after his knee replacement and ankle surgery, as he ran back and fourth in a beep test.

The 77-year-old posted a video to Instagram on Monday as he did laps on a football pitch, telling fans he was in “top fitness”.

The rocker went under the knife in 2020, after sustaining an injury while playing football – opting for ankle surgery which would have cost £8,000.
