The 25-year-old Brazil international forward scored twice for the Parisian club and had a great game overall.

The former Barcelona star has been in superb form for PSG since his move to the French club in the summer transfer window.

“He was ridiculous against Celtic,” Crouch wrote about Neymar in The Daily Mail. “He looks hungrier and more selfish in terms of wanting goals than he was at Barcelona.

“He's gone up a level with PSG and if he leads them to the Champions League — they are definitely potential winners — you could see him winning the Ballon D’Or.”
