Before the match, Rod marked the end of the Australasian leg of his world tour in style on Monday by getting the tattoo.
The Do Ya Think I’m Sexy hitmaker visited a local body art parlour and had an image of his favorite soccer team tattooed onto his shoulder.
The English native shared a snap of him sitting in the chair while the artist inked a Glasgow Celtics Scottish FC team logo on him.
‘Getting a Glasgow Celtic tattoo in Auckland to celebrate my beloved team. You’re in My Heart,’ he wrote next to the photo.
He also shared a snap of him singing in his team’s green and white colours at Auckland’s Spark Arena, to mark them winning a match in the Scottish Premiership.
It didn’t take long for many of Rod’s celebrity pals to go wild over his new body art.
‘Safe travels mate. Go Celtics,’ gushed Rod’s touring partner Jon Stevens and others quickly agreed.
Stewart has been performing a greatest hits tour across Australia and New Zealand over the past month and wrapped it up with a sold-out show in Auckland on Sunday.
Rod has certainly been enjoying himself between concerts during his farewell tour.
The star was recently spotted leaving the trappings of fame behind as he enjoyed a ferry ride to Manly, a beach-side suburb in northern Sydney.

While in New South Wales, he also dropped into the Woodpecker Model Railways shop in Pendle Hill to search for toy trains to add to his collection.
Rod is a keen model train collector who has spent 30 years designing a model American city at his home in England.
The sighting comes after he rescheduled his anticipated concert at Mt Duneed Estate, which he later performed with Cyndi Lauper and Jon Stevens.
In a statement he sent out last month, the rock star said he was ‘feeling great’ and asked fans to ‘please hang on to your tickets’.
Roundhouse Entertainment Director Michael Newton said he was ‘thrilled’ they were able to ‘find a free date’ for Rod, Cyndi and Jon to do a make-up performance.
