Scott Brown: 'Paris Saint-Germain are a great team'

The mood in the Celtic camp seems upbeat as Rodgers laughs during their training session

Not many will expect the Bhoys to even earn a point from the encounter against a team boasting world-class footballers such as Neymar, Edinson Cavani, Marco Verratti, Thiago Silva and Angel Di Maria.

After four consecutive seasons of reaching the quarter-finals, PSG fell at the round of 16 last season when they capitulated against Barcelona after winning the first leg 4-0.

Neymar, at 25, and Antoine Griezmann (26) are the two most likely to deny Ronaldo and Messi the Ballon d'Or this season, but their ages deny them the chance to target a decade of dominance in the Champions League. "We have worked really hard to improve things within the team", the Spanish coach said.

"I think my team showed a lot of character". The only time that had been measured with Celtic ended up lifting solitary european title to ir trophy, cup winners ' cup in 1996.

The 20-year-old must first take on the challenge of replacing Neymar at the Nou Camp, following the Brazilian's world-record €222m move to PSG, before setting his sights on dominating the Champions League stage.

The French side's formidable front line terrorised the Celtic defence and Emery warned they would only get better.

European nights at Celtic Park are commonly regarded as special, with Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels remarking earlier this week how he couldn't wait to play at the ground.

Although Brown admitted that Celtic did not have the best opening half to the game, he is sure that they will pick themselves from the heavy defeat. Manchester City are the shortest of the Premier League representatives @ [13.5] but for all the progress they are making under Pep, the defence still looks like a limiting factor.

The supporter was roundly booed before being escorted from the pitch.

Celtic will pray that luck, alongside a vocal home crowd, is on their side as they host Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday. Key to Celtic's worry will be a series of Uefa penalties, totalling more than £160,000 for 12 offences over the past six years.
