Neymar's brilliant performance against Celtic in the Champions League was overshadowed for snubbing Anthony Ralston's hand following the game, but the Brazilian has somewhat redeemed himself for his poor behaviour.

Europe's elite competition returned with Paris Saint-Germain thrashing Celtic 5-0 in their opening game of the group stage.

The clubs feared attacking trident 'MCN' were in action with the trio of players all getting on the score sheet.

Neymar opened the scoring with Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani joining in to complete the rout.

Though Neymar made the headlines after refusing to shake the hand of his man marker, Ralston. The young right-back kept tabs, well he tried to, on him all night. But Neymar snubbed his offer at the full-time whistle.

Needless to say, he's been subject to intense scrutiny for his childish antics, yet the 25-year-old did something incredible following the match.

Neymar, who dons the No.10, donated his shirt to Kenny Dalglish's wife's breast cancer foundation.


That's more like it, Neymar. Class.

Will this claw back some of the negative attention?

Meanwhile, Celtic's 18-year-old has since responded to Tuesday nights confrontation with the worlds most expensive footballer.

"It wasn't a big deal. I won't dwell on that too much," he said via The Daily Record.

Rolston added: "If that is the case, and that is the way he wants to be, then fine. I don't care. Everybody is different so I won't lose any sleep over it."

Nicely said, Anthony.

Both PSG and Celtic resume the league campaign before facing Bayern Munich (!!) and Anderlecht, respectively, in the next round of Champions League group stage games.
