Celtic 0-5 Paris Saint-Germain: Parisian stars clinical in rout

Neymar celebrates after opening the scoring for PSG in a runaway win against Celtic.

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani are available to Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery as the Champions League Group B campaign begins against Celtic on Tuesday.

Considering the task at hand, he acquitted himself fairly well and his passionate performance went down well with the Celtic faithful.

MF Giovani Lo Celso, NR - The Argentine replaced Mbappe after 84 minutes, and although Cavani scored his second and PSG's fifth one minute later, the match was already as good as dead, and Lo Celso had little time to get on the ball, let alone catch the eye.

Having clearly spotted the young defender's offering, Neymar made a decision to shake the hand of his teammate Marco Verratti instead.

"First half, we were disappointing, but second half we were a bit better", he told BT Sport.

As for Mbappe and PSG, the Ligue 1 side eventually wrapped up an emphatic win, with Cavani doubling his tally and a Mikael Lustig own goal capping a miserable night for the hosts.

"It was a real team effort and they showed a real controlled approach to the match, which I am really pleased with".

BRENDAN RODGERS accused Celtic of playing like schoolboys as PSG taught them a Euro lesson.

Ralston raised the noise levels inside Celtic Park when he followed a rampaging run with a hefty challenge on Thiago Motta, the 18-year-old responding to the booking from referee Daniele Orsato by raising his fists in defiance to his supporters.

"I think the stewards dealt with it at the time and I'm sure the club will deal with it".

It promises to be a night of exciting football at Celtic Park, but Bhoys fans will be hoping their side do not suffer a repeat of the thrashing Barcelona gave them previous year.

"The reaction [of the rest of the fans] said it all", said Rodgers.

Celtic improved after the break as PSG took their foot off the gas but two late goals left the Scottish giants with their biggest ever home loss in Europe.
