Dogg seeking the run of Parkhead

Hip hop superstar Snoop Dogg has revealed he wants to buy a share in Celtic FC.

The rapper says he wants a seat on the board and is ready to shell out millions to get involved at the Parkhead club.

He said he has discussed his plans with David Beckham and claims he’ll get Becks into a Hoops jersey. The Gin & Juice star was inspired to get involved after watching the club, who are worth around £30m (€37.4m), beat Barcelona in the Champions League earlier this month.

“I see how passionate Celtic fans are about their team and I could see myself making an investment,” said Snoop. “I don’t need to run a soccer club but enough to get me on the board so I can be heard. I want to bring a bit of Snoop to things.”
