Celebrity fan Snoop Dogg wants to be the Celtic mascot against Juventus!

The hip hop superstar has been following the Champions League campaign avidly and wants to lead out Neil Lennon’s side against the Serie A champions.

Tickets are like gold dust for the biggest match that Glasgow has staged in years with the LA based sueperstar desperate for a share od rgw action

“It’s the one I need to go to,” he revealed during an interview in Dubai. “It’s the game we’ve been waiting for.

“I need tickets but I want to walk out with the team like a little kid with the banner. Yes, yes, make it happen. Hail, hail the Celts are here. Yabadabadoo!”

Hoop Dogg added: “I fell in love with the club and what better way to show my support than to be a part of it. I just want to learn more about it and I figured if I become a part of it, I’ll do that.

“I love sports, I’m athletic. All around the world there are different sports that dictate that part of the world you live in – and I just want to be a part of it.

“I have got a big interest in soccer. It’s not new 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 haven’t really thought how much to put in. I don’t need to run the club but I’d like enough of a percentage to get me on the board and 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.”
