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.''
