Susan Boyle is a Celtic fan – who knew?
The Scottish singing star was the center of attention at the football team’s Thursday night match against Hamburg – though not exactly in a good way.
The “Britain’s Got Talent” runner-up had the honor of pulling the half-time lottery winner. When she stepped on the field, Boyle waved her Celtic scarf above her head so enthusiastically that the fly of her pants popped open.
For a minute, fans might have thought Susan was togging off, as the team are so bereft of scoring strikers she might have been able to come in and put one in the back of the net.
Or maybe she could have performed a remix of " I Dreamed a Dream" where the Hoops actually scored a few goals — but like she sings, "there are dreams that cannot be, and there are storms that we cannot weather."
And alas, even though she accidentally flashed her stomach to thousands of people, the internationally loved singer kept her cool, and went on undeterred with the draw. Boyle would not play, and head coach Tony Mowbray would have to come up with a Plan B.
Celtic ended up losing the match, the dream of scoring a goal for their superstar fan was not to be and the Bhoys defense could not weather the German storm when Marcus Berg scored the only goal of the game in the 63rd minute.
