Snoop Lion has pleaded with a top soccer club to make him their mascot.

The US rapper is desperate to lead Scottish giants Celtic out onto the pitch - a role usually reserved for a youngster - when they take on Italian heavyweights Juventus in the illustrious Champions League competition next Tuesday (12.02.13).

''Hail, hail, the Celts are here. Yaba-daba-doo!''

He told the Sunday Mail newspaper: ''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. Yaba-daba-doo!''

What's more, Snoop has previously talked about investing in his beloved Celtic after they overcame Spanish supremos Barcelona in a Champions League game.

He said: ''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 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.

''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.''

    The Americans just don't get it eh? You cannot buy Scottish heritage as easy as they liken themselves to being Irish every St. Pats by wearing green wigs and drinking something they call green beer. Every true Glaswegian I have spoken to in regard to this Snoop character is horrified at the thought of our beloved Celtic (or as the Americans pronounce it "Keltik") becoming involved with a clown from the 'big whoop' country across the sea. For the love of decency, America, no disrespect to you, but Celtic FC is in our blood and cannot be mocked by the likes of someone who has no understanding of the history behind Celtic FC. Snoop, stay away, you're not wanted here.
