Samba superstar Neymar courted controversy after being spotted in a Paris nightclub last weekend.

That prospect is not lightened by the fact that Bitton has been operating as a makeshift centre-back, a role that has seen him draw fire from critics who regard the Israel international midfielder as a risk at the heart of the back line.

Neymar is very responsible.

Cavani added his second with a well-controlled back-post volley in the 79th minute, Tierney inadvertently steering the ball past the helpless Gordon.

"He then comes back and plays well".

"The objective is to be first in the group and we are not there yet".

"So we will be absolutely fine".

The Scottish champions lost 7-0 in the Nou Camp last season, which Rodgers referred to in his postmatch news conference.

Rodgers had given away all his secrets to the Madrid media spies who watched training at the Bernabeu the evening before, and subsequently Real Madrid knew exactly how their opponents would be playing.

Celtic have struggled somewhat losing three matches against the two heavyweights of the group; PSG and Bayern Munich.

He warned Brendan Rodgers' side PSG have IMPROVED since that September mauling.

Emery, who confirmed midfielder Thiago Motta was out with a knee injury, said: "We want this first position".

And speaking to Sky Sports on Wednesday afternoon, Merson predicted the French side to exploit Celtic's inferior resources in Paris - and match that previous 5-0 scoreline.

Brown wants to emulate Scotland's shock win.

He said: "We hope we can get a better performance and result".

Celtic are next in action in the Scottish League Cup Final on Monday morning (2am AEDT) against Motherwell.

"We also need to improve".

By netting seven goals, PSG broke the record for goals scoring in a group stage, which was Borussia Dortmund's record of 21 last season. Play seven? Sometimes you have to take your hat off to their quality. I haven't seen too many teams do what they did to them at Parkhead, I really haven't.

"The lessons for us: we can keep the ball better, defend better at set-pieces but you also have to admire the sheer quality of PSG". McGregor may not have the poise of Ntcham or match up to Rogic as an attacking force, but he's a tactically disciplined worker who'll run himself into the ground. He could be the one to unpick the Celtic defence tonight.

I was proud of the players.

"We conceded a very early goal but we never doubted ourselves", said Rabiot.

Having led 4-1 at half-time, it took until the 75th minute for the fifth goal to arrive.

"But our manager speaks a lot to us about this record".
