Argentine ace Lionel Messi has vowed to help fire Celtic into the last sixteen of the Champions League.

"The Celtic fans deserve to be in Europe" - Lionel Messi
His Barcelona host Benfica in their final group game on Wednesday evening when the visitors must ensure their result isn't bettered by the Scottish champions as they entertain Spartak Moscow.

And even though his side have already confirmed their own qualification, Messi insists they will be doing their level best to defeat their Portuguese opponents.

"The Celtic fans deserve to be in Europe," Messi told the Daily Record. "They have been amazing in both games we have played against them recently.

"We knew what they were going to be like in Glasgow," he continued. "But the way they were in Barcelona after they had just lost in the way they did was amazing. I have never seen anything like that before."
