Brazilian superstar Neymar has outshone Caltex Socceroos playmaker Tommy Rogic in PSG’s big win over Celtic in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday morning (AEST).
Inspired by Neymar’s brilliance, PSG cruised to an emphatic 5-0 win over the Hoops at Celtic Park.
Rogic started from the bench and could only watch on as Neymar opened the scoring in just the tenth minute, firing a precise first-time shot into the roof of the net.
A goal from boom teenage French striker Kylian Mbappe and a penalty from Uruguayan star Edison Cavani gave PSG a 3-0 half-time advantage.
Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers introduced Rogic at half-time, but he was unable to affect a comeback for his side.
An own-goal from defender Mikael Lustig and a late second for Cavani inflated the scoreline.
Rogic will be back in action on the weekend as Celtic host Ross County in the Scottish Premier League.
