The 41-year-old hip hop star is a qualified football coach and has even consulted fellow Los Angeles resident David Beckham about the Parkhead club.

And Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, wants to add the former England captain to Neil Lennon's squad.

He told the Daily Record: “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 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. The boxes at Celtic would never be the same once I have hosted a party there.

“I asked my man David (Beckham) about Celtic. I would try and sign him up for a season....I would have to at least make that offer to my boy."

Greek striker Samaras is much maligned in some quarters but not in Snoop Land.

He said: “I like Samaras a lot. He looks like a proper athlete and is a pretty dangerous player. If we are to go far in Europe, he needs to play well."
