Dani Alves: 'Neymar has not surprised me'
Edinson Cavani and Neymar both scored braces as Paris Saint-Germain registered a thumping 7-1 UEFA Champions League win over Celtic at Parc des Princes.
However, after a less than minute Dembele turned the game on its head.
"We understand we are playing against a team that is arguably the best of the best, which is a huge challenge for every team they come up against".
The world's most-expensive footballer levelled the tie by scoring against Celtic in the ninth minute and then added his second just after the 20 minute. Many clubs do it, but under Rodgers, Celtic tend to train in Glasgow before flying out to wherever the match is. Although it looked like he had no clear view of Dembele's effort, he and Alves should have done better.
That remains Celtic's biggest European defeat, but this was another humbling loss for Brendan Rodgers's side after they suffered their heaviest home loss in continental competition to PSG in September, losing 5-0. His goalscoring form last campaign from midfield was brilliant and he is also great at providing for his teammates. He also assisted Mbappe's first-half goal.
Neymar enjoys playing against Celtic and has now scored seven times against the Scottish side, one of which came in Barcelona's 7-0 win last season. But he didn't do that. When he is not on the pitch, he can enjoy his time with his friends. However, he did assist Cavani's volleyed second.
Brown said the memorable night for Scotland was already in the history books but it was proof no side could be written off. The former Barcelona player received the ball in front of the box, played a quick one-two with Marco Verratti, avoided a tackle attempt and beat Craig Gordon with a low shot.
That prospect is not lightened by the fact that Bitton has been operating as a makeshift centre-back, a role that has seen him draw fire from critics who regard the Israel international midfielder as a risk at the heart of the back line. And with the Betfred Cup final this coming Sunday against Motherwell, he may have been tempted to throw in a couple of squad rotation players for the trip to Dingwall before reverting to a stronger XI against PSG.
It was not the start that PSG expected to the game, but the early bluster of the visiting side was soon absorbed by the hosts, who dominated possession and exploited a Celtic backline that is all too obviously short of quality to allow their team to compete at the very top level. "But they just dismantled them, it was unbelievable".
