Rapper Snoop Dogg seeks street cred with Celtic investment
U.S. rapper Snoop Dogg -- or Snoop Lion, as he is now known - is reportedly prepared to invest in Scottish champions Celtic. The 41-year-old became enthusiastic after watching highlights of Celtic's famous 2-1 victory over Barcelona in the Champions League this month.
"I got a lot of interest in soccer. It's not a new thing for hip hop stars to invest in sports teams but it is a new thing for hip hop stars to invest in soccer teams," Snoop Dogg was quoted as saying in the Scottish Daily Record.
"I see how passionate Celtic fans are about their team and I could see myself making an investment if any of the board wanted to sell.
"I haven't really thought how much. I don't need to run a soccer club but enough of a percentage to get me on the board so I can be heard.
"I want to bring a bit of Snoop to things."
