Rapper Snoop Dogg Wants Shares In Celtic And Wants To Sign David Beckham


Hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg has revealed that he wants to buy a share in Celtic Football Club.

The LA rapper is prepared to spend millions to get a seat on the Parkhead board after discussing his plans with pal David Beckham – and claiming he will get the former England captain into a Hoops shirt.

Snoop was overwhelmed after watching the £30million rated Scottish club beat Barcelona in the Champions League earlier this month.

He said: “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.

“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 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.”

The 41-year-old revealed that he asked former Manchester United player and LA Galaxy star David Beckham for advice.

He said: “I asked my man David about Celtic and he was like, ‘Yeah, teams don’t come much bigger’.

“I would try and sign him up for a season but he is pretty happy over here. LA is home for him and his family now – but I would have to at least make that offer to my boy.

“We have lunch when we can, so next time, you know, I am going to speak to him about it. Never say never.”

Snoop Dogg is a qualified football coach who trains his son’s school team and had been a fan of Celtic since he was pictured in a Hoops top in 2005.
