Glasgow: Celtic manager Neil Lennon slammed the part Brazilian superstar Neymar played in Scott Brown's sending off in his side's narrow 1-0 Champions League Group H defeat to Barcelona.

Despite Barca dominating possession the Hoops were holding the Catalan giants at bay until the 59th minute when Brown saw red for appearing to direct a kick at Neymar, who started in place of the injured Lionel Messi in Glasgow, as he lay on the deck following a trip by the Celtic captain.

However, Lennon labelled the decision as soft and hit out at Neymar for his reaction following the incident, which he said changed the shape of the game.
