A Lionel Messi double secured a 3-2 Champions League victory for Barcelona at Celtic Park to put the Catalan giants in the driving seat for the last-16 return leg at the Nou Camp in a fortnight´s time.

Celtic had twice taken the lead through Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink and Barry Robson but their efforts were cancelled out by Messi and Thierry Henry respectively.

Just when the Scottish champions looked set to hold on for a draw, Argentina star Messi grabbed a late winner to inflict Celtic´s first Champions League home defeat since 2004.
