PSG's 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich may not have meant much in the grand scheme of things, with the French club still qualifying for the round of 16 as Group B winners, but the Parisians' trip to Bavaria still proved to be a miserable evening for Neymar.

The world's most expensive footballer cannot stay out of the headlines no matter what he does, and last night the Brazilian forward was once again the centre of attention without even doing much at all.

The former Barcelona star was targeted by the home fans at the Allianz Arena as they hurled fake €500 notes with his face on during the game. The 25-year-old was greeted by bundles of the cash being thrown in his direction as he went to take a corner in the first half.

A brace from Robert Lewandowski and a goal from French midfielder Corentin Tolisso handed Bayern all three points, with Kylian Mbappe scoring a consolation goal for the visitors, ensuring he became the youngest ever player to score 10 Champions League goals.

The result means Die Roten qualify as group runners-up on 13 points, two behind PSG, with Celtic dropping into the Europa League in third place.

What do you make of the gesture by Bayern's fans, though? Does Neymar deserve to be on the receiving end of such treatment or is it too much?
