The Maggie May singer described the UK’s decision to leave the European Union as an “enormous error”. Ahead of the release of a new album, the 76-year-old spoke to a Barcelona-based reporter for Spanish daily El Mundo about Brexit and the aftermath of this vote.

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.

“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 recently released his 31st studio album ‘The Tears of Hercules’ just ahead of the Christmas period.

He also spoke of his love for Scotland, with his dad being from the country.

Sir Rod 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.”

As well as his love for Scotland, Rod Stewart also spoke of Rolling Stones’ decision to axe Brown Sugar from their tour.

This decision was made due to the lyrics in this song making reference to slavery throughout.

However, the 76-year-old was not best pleased by this decision.

He added: “I think it’s rubbish.

“They should have carried on playing Brown Sugar.

“Stopping doing it is the most stupid thing I’ve ever heard.”

The singer came under fire a few years ago for appearing to endorse Boris Johnson in the 2019 general election.

Speaking to BBC Scotland’s Nine programme in November of 2019, Sir Rod 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.”
