Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion is planning to invest in a Scottish soccer club.
Snoop is a huge soccer fan and supports Glasgow club Celtic, a squad that also counts Rod Stewart as a fan.
The rapper has confirmed that he wants a seat on the board and would like to be involved in the running of the club.
He told a British newspaper, "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 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 (I'd like) 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."
Snoop also runs a youth football league in his native California. That's American football, by the way, since European football is soccer.
Do you follow European soccer at all?
