Tony Watt: Fires home his goal against Barcelona

The 18-year-old came off the bench to grab Celtic's crucial second goal seven minutes from time to add to Victor Wanyama's first half opener with Lionel Messi's stoppage time strike coming too late for Barcelona.

Watt admitted the victory over the Spanish giants had yet to sink it after Neil Lennon's side recorded one of the best results in their history.

Asked if the result had sunk in yet, Watt told Sky Sports HD2: "Not yet, it will take a couple of hours. "I just saw Valdes and tried to put it in the corner and I just put it to the side of him and I couldn't believe it when it went it.

"It is probably the best moment of my life and when I look back at it when I am older and just think I have just beaten Barcelona in the Champions League - there is nothing better is there."

Fraser Forster, who was in inspired form in goal for Celtic, believes everyone played their part in a famous win for the Scottish champions.

"We have got a fantastic squad of players and whoever comes in will do tremendous for us and we really showed in the Nou Camp what we could do and we just couldn't see it through and even with injuries we have got a fantastic squad," said Forster.

"Everyone was tremendous and everyone played their part tonight and I think we deserved it in the end.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
