Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama described it as an "unbelievable" victory against Barcelona in the Champions League.

"It's just unreal to beat one of the best teams in the world"- Victor Wanyama
The Kenyan international headed his side into a first-half lead and substitute Tony Watt later added a second with just seven minutes remaining.

Argentinian master Lionel Messi replied for the Catalans in added time but couldn't prevent the hosts from strengthening their hold on second place in the group.

"This is unbelievable. I can't even describe it, it's just unreal to beat one of the best teams in the world," Wanyama told "We were calm with the ball and that's what kept us in the game, we believed in ourselves.

"The first goal was important and gave us the energy to go on," he added. "We have been working hard at set-pieces, we knew we were going to get one and we did it well."
