Ally McCoist makes priceless Rangers response to Snoop Dogg comments on Celtic

Ally McCoist was in great form as he replied to comments from of all people Snoop Dogg on the Scottish Premiership title race between Rangers and Celtic.

Snoop told the Daily Record last week he planned to fly into Glasgow and throw a lavish player’s party should the Hoops lift the Premiership title, intending to provide an interesting combination of champagne and curry.

And now McCoist has poked fun at the legendary American rapper, telling talkSPORT this morning (20 April) the Gers’ have had their own share of famous supporters and that he’s firmly in favour of another huge artist Eminem.

“It was Sean Connery, so stick that in your pipe and smoke it Snoop,” he told the station.

“But Eminem is, he’s a mad bluenose. I told you, Eminem is miles better. This is Eminem loyal here.

“It sounds like Snoop has been enjoying himself a wee bit too much. He needs to get on the Indian curries and off whatever he’s on, to be quite honest.”

Unlikely Rivals

Tell someone last week that Ally McCoist and Snoop Dogg would be in a war of words over Rangers and Celtic and most would wonder whether you’d been diagnosed as clinically insane.

Snoop has supposedly been a Hoops fan since 2005 when he was given a free shirt after a live show in Glasgow, and with his reputation, you can guarantee he would make good on his promise of an outlandish party should they win the league.

McCoist maybe doesn’t have the same draw globally as his American counterpart but is loved by football fans all the same for his sheer passion for the game, as well as his sporting nature when it comes to comedic encounters such as this one.

His comments provide a good laugh for fans who have probably conceded the title to their Old Firm rivals, although they did grab some revenge with victory in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

If Celtic do win the league, it would be some sight to see Snoop jetting in and partying with the likes of Kyogo Furuhashi. Watch out Glasgow.
