The likes of Arda Turan and Luis Suarez have both reacted on Twitter, after Barcelona beat Celtic 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 took the lead in the match when Arda Turan curled in a great shot from the edge of the area.

Celtic then levelled through Leigh Griffiths, but Luis Enrique’s side went back in front when under pressure defender Efe Ambrose diverted the ball into his own net.

Barcelona’s triumph was completed late on, when Munir rounded off the scoring.

Celtic’s next fixture comes against Astana in Champions League qualification.
