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 didn’t catch the whole Barcelona game but I watched the highlights. I know Barcelona are a big deal and it shows Celtic are a big deal as well.

”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.“
