Don't touch Neymar!

Tuesday's Champions League fixtures saw plenty of action with protesters interrupting Basel's match with Schalke after abseiling into the stadium, while up in Scotland Barcelona inched past Celtic.

Cesc Fabregas was the hero for the Catalans heading home late on to secure victory for the Spanish champions and ensure heartbreak for Neil Lennon's men.

However, the main talking point was not Fabregas' goal but the red card which saw Scott Brown sent off on the hour mark for a kick at Neymar, a decision that did not go down well with the home fans.

Celtic cry foul over Juventus' rough & tumble

Celtic huffed and puffed on Tuesday evening but Neil Lennon's men were eventually punished for failing to take their chances as Juventus escaped with a 3-0 victory in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

After the defeat, Lennon blasted the performance of referee, Alberto Undiano Mallenco, after replays highlighted Juventus players grappling with Celtic's Gary Hooper in the visitors' penalty box before several corners.

"It's not rugby we're playing, it's soccer," said Lennon.

"They were being fouled, manhandled. Every time one of my players tried to move he was held. He should have given a penalty on at least two occasions.

"I'd like to know what the interpretation of the rules are in Italy or Spain, because it's blatantly different to what they are in Britain from what I've seen tonight.

"They were fouling on every opportunity and he was staring right at it.
