Video: Neymar Refuses Handshake With Celtic’s Anthony Ralston After 5-0 Thrashing

PSG walked through Celtic at Parkhead tonight, with the Parisian side securing a 5-0 victory and Neymar making few friends in the process.

The Brazil international, who completed a high-profile switch from Barcelona this summer, lined-up across from Hoops youngster Anthony Ralston.

And as you’d expect with a player of Neymar’s temperament and with a player as inexperienced as Ralston, things quickly escalated between the pair.

It all started when Neymar beat Ralston in the opening half hour to score PSG’s first goal.

The 18-year-old Champions League debutant then proceeded to laugh in Neymar’s face after he was booked for diving in the second half.

So, when the final whistle went, Neymar controversially refused to shake the youngster’s hand, before covering his mouth as he spoke to the defender:


What Neymar said to Ralston is anyone’s guess…

However, we feel it’s safe to assume it wasn’t complimentary.

Definitely looking forward to seeing this pair clash again when the two team’s play in the Parc de Princes.
