Snoop Dogg has claimed that he wants to buy shares in Celtic.

The hip hop star witnessed Neil Lennon's side beat Barcelona at Celtic Park on November 7 and has said that he would like to invest some of his fortune into the Scottish champions.

"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," said Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus.

"I [have] 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 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."

The Los Angeles native also said that he spoke to David Beckham about the possibility of investment and admitted that he would like to sign the former Manchester United man for the Hoops.

"I asked my man David about Celtic and he was like, 'Yeah, teams don't come much bigger'.

"I would try and sign him up for a season but he is pretty happy over here. LA is home for him and his family now – but I would have to at least make that offer to my boy."

Celtic are currently top of the Scottish Premier League after picking up 25 points from 13 games.
