Commission impossible: Neymar, his father and Barcelona's millions

Neymar has set the fourth fastest hat trick in Champions League history as Barcelona rampaged past Celtic 6-1 on Wednesday.

The Brazilian, 21, scored his first goal in the continental competition on 44 minutes, which was the third for Gerardo Martino's men of the night after Gerard Pique and Pedro opened the goal glut at Camp Nou.

After halftime, the ex-Santos star scored in the 48th and 58th minutes to become the fourth-fastest player to rack up three goals in a Champions League tie.

Batefimbi Gomis still holds the quickest trio of goals having netted thrice in eight minutes as Olympique Lyonnais beat Dinamo Zagreb two seasons ago in the group stage.

Barca's comfortable victory in Catalunya sees the club top Group H in the tournament ahead of Monday's last 16 draw.
