It looks like the glamourously world of the football mascot has spread to the celebrity circuit, because Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion as he now likes to be called), has declared that he wants in.
The rapper has stated that he wants to take in the role at Celtic, after falling in love with the club. No, really.
It’s the one I need to go to, it’s the game we have been waiting for. I need tickets but I want to walk out with the team like a little kid with the banner. Yes, yes, make it happen. Hail, hail the Celts are here. Yabbadabbado.
Snoop also spoke about his love for the SPL leaders:
I fell in love with the club and what better way to show my support than to be a part of it.
I just want to learn more about it and I figured if I become a part of it, I’ll do that. I love sports, I’m athletic. All around the world there are different sports that dictate that part of the world you live in – and I just want to be a part of it.
I have got a big interest in soccer. It’s not new for hip hop stars to invest in sports teams but it is a new thing for hip hop stars to invest in soccer teams. I haven’t really thought how much to put in.
I don’t need to run the club but I’d like enough of a percentage to get me on the board and be heard. I want to bring a bit of Snoop to things.
I am passionate about my sport. The boxes at Celtic would never be the same once I have hosted a party there.
I think we can file that one under bizarre.
