Celtic beat Barcelona 3-1 in a pre-season friendly yesterday.
Barca won 3-1 in their first match of the International Champions Cup, in what was an entertaining match at Celtic Park.
The Bhoys gave a Barcelona side, which featured the likes of Suarez and Lionel Messi, a good test. However, the La Liga champions were worthy winners and their players were pleased to get their pre-season off to a good start.

Barcelona’s triumph was completed late on, when Munir rounded off the scoring.
Celtic’s next fixture comes against Astana in Champions League qualification.
