"It would be interesting if he did put money in..."
Snoop Dogg

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has revealed that he would welcome any investment from Snoop Dogg in the club.

Celtic are a Scottish footballing institution. Formed as a means to bring welfare, employment and opportunity to Glasgow's deprived East End, the club have notched up numerous historic triumphs across their 125 year history.

Now the club could be able to call on one of hip hop's true icons. Snoop Dogg recently revealed that he was interested in investing in Celtic, with the rapper explaining that he was struck by the atmosphere generated by fans during a recent Champions League encounter with Barcelona.

"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" he told the Daily Record. "I don't need to run a soccer club but enough of a percentage to get me on the board so I can be heard."

The newspaper then approached Celtic boss Neil Lennon, who explained that he would welcome any approach. "It would be interesting if he did put money in" the former Northern Irish international explained. "As long as I got invited to one of his parties, it would be okay."

Snoop Dogg would join Celtic's cavalcade of big name supporters. Rod Stewart is famously a fan of the Hoops, and was caught wiping tears from his eyes following the now famous Champions League victory over Barcelona.
