Unai Emery's Paris Saint-Germain smashed five past Celtic on Tuesday night as the deadly trio of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar ran riot.

It was a very one sided affair at a packed out Celtic Park, as the £550m worth of PSG talent exposed Brendan Rodgers' sides defensive frailties throughout.

But an incident after the full-time whistle has somewhat took the shine off an impressive performance from Les Parisiens.


Neymar refused to shake the hand of 18-year-old Anthony Ralston when the Celtic defender approached the £198 million man, and his actions have since sparked plenty of reaction on social media.

If you missed it, here's the moment Neymar laughed and winked at Ralston after the FT whistle:

Just a matter of hours after the confrontation went viral, Ralston has released a statement about the full-time antics, insisting that he won't lose any sleep over the handshake snub.

"It wasn't a big deal. I won't dwell on that too much." the 18-year-old said, via the Daily Record.

"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."

Well played, Anthony.

If you haven't seen the clip above, having clearly spotted the young defender's offering, Neymar decided to shake the hand of his teammate Marco Verratti instead.

The Paris Saint-Germain No.10 continued to have something to say to Ralston as his teammates intervened to try and defuse the situation, before laughing and winking at his opponent.
