Celtic caused one of the upsets of the Champions League group stages as they clung on to record a historic 2-1 win over Barcelona, the perfect way for the Scottish side to celebrate their 125th anniversary.

Victor Wanyama headed powerfully into the net off a corner to give Celtic the lead in the first half, and despite a never-ending onslaught, the home team stood firm against Barcelona after the break.

A breakaway goal from Tony Watt made it 2-0 late on in the game before Leo Messi pulled one back for the visitors.
