HOLLYWOOD’S Bill Murray drank gin and sang with students at their party — and even stopped cops shutting it down.

Revellers were starstuck when the Ghostbusters legend, 69, turned up at the flat in St Andrews, Fife.

Murray — who was in the town for the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship golf — was invited by Hugh Kelly, 26, after he bumped into the actor at a pub.

The Glasgow University student said: “He started drinking with us and we managed to get him back to ours after. He’s nearly 70 and he’s just there getting hammered with us.”

Knowing the star was a massive fan of Scottish folk music, Hugh started playing classic song Loch Lomond on his guitar.

He said: “From the corner of the party, he came straight to the microphone and started singing. It went silent and we just jammed away for a bit.”

Hugh shared a video online of the Lost in Translation star blasting out Loch Lomond at the top of his lungs, with a drink in hand.

Hugh said Murray even used his A-list status to stop cops shutting down the party. The actor told the gathering: “I don’t fear the police, but I respect their power.”

Hugh added: “Bill stood up and just stared at them, and then the police were just like, ‘Oh sorry guys, just keep it down a bit, have a good night’. He’s an odd guy but a lovely guy.”

Their brief relationship ended when Hugh was asked to fetch a beer, but came back only with sparkling water and Murray said: “What the f*** are you doing?”
