Football: Martino hails best Barcelona performance
BARCELONA (AFP) - Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino said his side produced their best display in his time in charge as they ensured top spot in Champions League Group H with a 6-1 thrashing of Celtic on Wednesday, Dec 11, 2013.
Gerard Pique opened the scoring for the hosts early on, but thereafter Neymar took centre stage as the Brazilian set up the second goal for Pedro Rodriguez before going on to score his first Barcelona hat-trick.
A deflected effort from Cristian Tello and a late consolation from Giorgios Samaras rounded off the scoring.
And Martino was delighted with how his side reacted to recent criticism following defeats away to Ajax and Athletic Bilbao.
