Twitter Reacts As Lionel Messi And Barcelona Absolutely Destroy Celtic

The last time Celtic went to Barcelona in the Champions League, they came away with a 6-1 hammering.

If they thought for a second that their return to the Camp Nou might go even a little bit better for them, they were in for a rude awakening.

A Lionel Messi-inspired Barcelona side completely tore Celtic apart, laying waste to Brendan Rodgers’ side and winning 7-0 in the end.

The Argentine legend scored a hat-trick, with further goals coming from Ivan Rakitic and Andres Iniesta, and two from Rodgers’ former player Luis Suárez.

Social media tried its best to be sympathetic to Celtic’s plight but ultimately could only marvel at a home performance worthy of one of the greatest sides ever assembled.

The defeat, incidentally, was Celtic’s heaviest ever loss in Europe.
