The pair clashed repeatedly during a 5-0 defeat at Celtic Park on Tuesday night and Ralston "exchanged words" with the world-record £200m Brazilian at the final whistle.

Once again, both of his new strike partners - Neymar and Edinson Cavani - were also on the scoresheet.

Neymar and Ralston exchanged words during the game, with the Celtic teenager having a kiss blown his way at one point. A perfectly weighted pass from the classy France worldwide, and a well-timed run past Celtic's 18-year old rookie Anthony Rolston set the Brazilian free and he made no mistake with the finish, finishing emphatically past Craig Gordon in the Celtic goal.

Neymar didn't like that rough treatment and took the huff, but Ralston laughed off his reaction.

As for Ralston, he didn't appear to concerned at being snubbed by his opponent.

He said: "These games test you mentally and I felt all the boys bounced back in the second half and we went for it".

But Sinclair said: "I think every game you play in the Champions League has pressure no matter if you win, lose or draw".

"It wasn't a big deal", he said after what was only his fifth senior start.

"I don't want to be too tough on the players".

When the Catalan side returned last season, Neymar was jeered from first touch to last, not that the experience troubled him, according to his own testimony on the run-up to this encounter.

The world's most expensive player opened the scoreline and had a running battle with Ralston throughout, taunting the 18-year old full-back during the game and exchanging words at full time. Usually, when a person fearless security teams and pounced on a lawn in the full game, it is more of a hug to Neymar that distribute bread to a kid of 18 years old, but good...

"I did exactly the same routine".

Celtic's atmosphere, the will of the players, all the mythical things associated with the Scottish club were wheeled out, but in the end they weren't a match on the pitch for Unai Emery's men.
