Sir Rod previously backed a Yes vote in Scotland – despite saying that he would be sad to see the Union split. Speaking to BBC Scotland’s The Nine show in November of 2019, the 76-year-old said: “I’m somewhat of a traditionalist.

“It would be a shame to see the British Isles break up.

“It would be a shame to see that blue off the Union Jack.

“But if it is good for Scotland then I’m happy.”

He added: “It’s always been a spiritual home but as I don’t live there I shouldn’t comment on independence.

“I hope it’s not a lot of kids thinking ‘Braveheart’.”

But now, the Maggie May singer has renewed his support, saying he would back Scotland should it decide to call a second independence referendum.

He said: “I don’t live there, so it would be a bit presumptuous on my part to give an opinion on what future is best for the Scottish, but I will support what they decide and is good for them.

“I love Scotland, the country and its people.”

London-born Sir Rod has links to Scotland, with his father being born in the country.

This comes as the 76-year-old launched a fresh attack at Brexit Britain – even declaring that Boris Johnson “should have called” him to discuss the subject.

He said: “Brexit has been an enormous mistake and we’re realising it too late.

“There’s a load of things Boris didn’t think about.”

The singer recently released his 31st studio album ‘The Tears of Hercules’, but has used his interviews for the album to talk all-things politics.

“He should have called me, I would have explained a couple of things to him.

“I’ve always been against it, I liked things the way they were before.

“What have we gained with all this?

“Ending up with no lorries?”

Sir Rod seemed to back Boris Johnson in his BBC Scotland’s The Nine show interview in November of 2019.

He said: “We’re in a muddle, but I think Boris will sort it out.

“We have to be patient.

“What I do know is that I was always a remainer.

“I didn’t see why we had to leave.

“Maybe it’s something that I’m missing, I don’t know, but I’m still a remainer.

“I know Boris is going to get us out.”
