Celtic heroes’ disbelief at Barca win

Celtic heroes Fraser Forster and Tony Watt were both in disbelief after the incredible 2-1 Champions League win over Barcelona.

Forster pulled off a series of incredible saves to help the Glasgow club to victory, while 18-year-old substitute Watt crowned a memorable night by coming on and grabbing the vital second goal eight minutes from time.

“It was tremendous and I don’t think words can describe it,” Forster told reporters immediately after the game.

“We put in so much effort at the Nou Camp and couldn’t see it through but tonight we’ve seen it through.

“We had a good look [at Barcelona} two weeks ago and knew what we wanted to do. Everyone was tremendous, everyone played their part.

“We defended really well before Tony came on and scored a great goal. His goals-to-games ratio is incredible.”

Watt claimed that beating the Catalans was possibly the best moment of his life and described his goal.

”It might take a couple of hours to sink in. I just saw [Victor] Valdes and I thought to put it to the side of him and it might go in.

“It’s probably the best moment of my life. I’ll look back at it when I’m older and think there’s nothing better because we beat Barcelona in the Champions League.”
