FANS of Rod Stewart got more than they bargained for when they suffered injuries at the hands, or rather feet, of the star himself.

Sir Rod Stewart has confessed that he’s had to stop one of his favourite concert show-stopping stunts after being sued twice by fans who suffered injuries according to reports in the Las Vegas Review Journal.

During his gigs, Rod would give fans the chance to bag themselves a rare souvenir, a signed football.

The Celtic-mad rock star would sign footballs before booting them high into the air for eager fans to nab but has now decided to give it up after it earned him 2 red cards.

The 78-year-old-rocker admitted, “I got one or two lawsuits. In fact, when I got to the Hollywood Bowl last year, a dear friend who came all the way over to see me got smashed in the face with a ball”

This reportedly resulted in him having an operation although the two are believed to still be good friends.

Nowadays, in the interests of safety, he only allows female members of his band to throw out signed footballs and he believes that the stunt had been popular over his long career with lucky fans able to make money from the autographed balls.

The singing legend who has six number-one singles to his name and has sold over 250 million records worldwide is currently performing regularly in Las Vegas.
