PSG hammered the Scottish champions 5-0 in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, with Neymar getting on the scoresheet.

"I think he's probably up there already with Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo—he's so sharp, such an amazing footballer. But, if he wants to be liked as much as Messi, he needs to stop that.
