Celtic striker Tony Watt hailed last night’s Champions League win over Barcelona as one of the greatest in the club’s history.

The Hoops recorded a famous 2-1 victory in Glasgow, with the 18-year-old netting the telling second goal that led to wild celebrations in Parkhead.

Former Airdrie player Watt could hardly believe the significance of his first senior goal at Celtic Park.

He said: "It's unbelievable, one of the best victories in the club's history, probably.

"It's my first goal at Parkhead and it couldn't have come any better.

"I saw the keeper coming out and I tried to put it by him and obviously I did.

"I didn't think about how big a moment it was, I took it in my stride and put it away.

"It's my job, you've got to put the chances away so I'm happy I did.

"I was nervous at the end when they scored but we saw the game out."
