Snoop Dogg has said he wants to buy shares in Celtic Football Club.

The rapper, who recently changed his name to Snoop Lion, says he wants a seat on the Glasgow football team's board and is preparing to shell out millions to get involved, reports the Sunday Mail.

Snoop was inspired to invest in the team after watching highlights of their surprising 2-1 win over FC Barcelona in then Uefa Champions League earlier this month.

He said: "I've 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 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."

While he is hoping to join the board, Snoop has said that he has no interest in owning the club but said he wants to invest enough "to be heard" and hopes to "bring a bit of Snoop to things".

One of the rapper's plans is to bring Ex-Manchester United and current LA Galaxy footballer David Beckham to Glasgow. "I would try and sign him up for a season but he is pretty happy over here," said Snoop. "LA is home for him and his family now, but I would have to at least make that offer to my boy."

Snoop Dogg recently unveiled a video for the track 'La, La, La' - scroll down to watch it. The video is the first that Snoop has put out after his change in direction from rapper to reggae artist.
