While Celtic Park has played host to some of the most memorable Champions League matches in recent times, Tuesday evenings match-up against Paris Saint Germain will be a game that the club and fans will want to forget as quickly as possible.
Three first half goals from Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani effectively ended the game before the break and, despite some decent spells, Celtic simply couldn’t match the incomparable offensive talent of the Parisian side.
And the defeat turned to embarrassment when a Mikael Lustig and a second Cavani goal made it 5-0 to the visitors. While few expected Celtic to claim any points from this match-up, the manner and size of the defeat will be a concern, especially with a number of tough European games on the horizon for the Glasgow club.
In the wake of the defeat, Celtic fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment…
