'Neymar Knows How To Wind People Up'

Celtic manager Neil Lennon was not pleased with Neymar's showboating after his side's 4-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

The Brazilian featured for only 45 minutes of the friendly, but that was seemingly more than enough time to irritate Lennon, who exchanged a couple words with him during the encounter.

This is not the first time the PSG star has been criticised for enticing opponents with his showboating, having been called out during his time with FC Barcelona in LaLiga too, and Lennon made his feelings about this clear after the match.

"He was just trying to wind people up," he told the Daily Record.

"I said to the players, 'you just have to keep your discipline and not take the bait, really'.

"He is infuriating but he knows it."

Thomas Tuchel's men used the friendly clash as a warm-up for their Coupe de France final against Saint-Etienne on Friday night.

PSG have a chance to make history this season as they can end the campaign with fourth trophies: the Coupe de France, the Coupe de Ligue and the UEFA Champions League title to go along with their Ligue 1 trophy.
