Veteran rocker ROD STEWART still managed to watch his favourite soccer team on TV this week (ends24OCT03) - despite attending an awards bash on the same night.

The MAGGIE MAY singer and girlfriend Penny Lancaster were guests of honour at the MUSIC INDUSTRY TRUST AWARDS DINNER in London on Tuesday night (21OCT03) - but 58-year-old Rod was determined to watch his beloved CETLIC play ANDERLECHT in the EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.

An insider says, "It was really funny. He agreed on coming to the do and even sang four songs but his schedule had to be arranged around the football."
