"Everyone at Celtic would like to pass on our thoughts and best wishes to Billy Connolly," read a statement on the club's official website.

"Always a popular figure at Celtic Park, Billy is a comedy legend as well as being a star of television and films.

His spokeswoman said; "The operation was a total success, and Billy is fully recovered."
