JUBILANT Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery singled out Neymar for special praise after the Brazilian’s double helped to overwhelm Celtic 7-1 in the French capital.
The French superstars were rocked by a 57-second effort from Moussa Dembele, but recovered to lead 4-1 at the interval.
Neymar equalised shortly afterwards and then put PSG ahead before Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe effectively ended the game as a contest.
Marco Verratti, Cavani and Dani Alves claimed a quickfire trio near the end which means they have now scored more goals in a Champions League group stage than any other club in the competition’s history.
Emery highlighted the contribution of the £200million man afterwards.
The coach said: “He’s extraordinary. He wants to play the games, to be present on the pitch.
“Neymar makes everyone benefit from his talent.
“We are happy. If we could remove the Celtic goal, it would be better.
“There are still some details to improve, such as the loss of the ball, the position of the players in the recovery, choosing when to take the space, to have possession at this or that moment.
“But I think that the team has made very good things.”
