Snoop Dogg wants to buy stake in Celtic after famous Barca win

November 18th, 2012


It’s well known that Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion, as he goes by now) is a huge sports nut, and soccer fans may recall seeing him in those recent FIFA ‘13 commercials. And following the trend of many hip hop artists investing in sports teams (Jay-Z first and foremost), it shouldn’t come to much surprise that Snoop would want to jump into the fray.

But his choice might startle some: it’s Celtic!

Here’s what Snoop said in a recent interview with UK paper 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.

“I am passionate about my sport. The boxes at Celtic would never be the same once I have hosted a party there.”

That much would certainly be true. But we can’t speculate whether “Gin & Juice” would replace the beautiful renditions of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” at Celtic Park.
