Football: Barcelona edge past 10-man Celtic
GLASGOW (AFP) - Barcelona needed a second-half goal from Cesc Fabregas to claim a narrow 1-0 Champions League win over 10-man Celtic in Glasgow on Tuesday that leaves the Catalans top of Group H.
The Spanish champions dominated possession but failed to test goalkeeper Fraser Forster in the opening 45 minutes with Celtic's Georgios Samaras having the best chance of the half.
But it was a moment of madness from skipper Scott Brown that cost Celtic dearly as the midfielder was shown a straight red card in the 59th minute as he appeared to direct a sly kick at Neymar after tripping the Brazilian superstar.
However, Celtic recovered well from Brown's dismissal and substitute James Forrest forced Victor Valdes into a fine save before Charlie Mulgrew headed just wide.
