BARCELONA, Spain -- Neymar scored a Champions League hat trick in a 6-1 rout of Celtic on Wednesday to help Barcelona forget about Lionel Messi -- for one night at least. Brandon Morrow Jersey . Gerard Pique, Pedro Rodriguez, and Cristian Tello also scored for Group H winners Barcelona, while Giorgos Samara added a late consolation goal for Celtic, which finished last in the group. With Messi sidelined by a hamstring injury, Neymar was finally able to take command of a Barcelona attack which has passed through the boots of the Argentina forward for so many years. On Wednesday at the Camp Nou, it was Neymars feet which did the talking as he finally scored in Europes elite competition. "I dont feel pressure but, still, I should score," Neymar said. After Piques seventh-minute opener got the Spanish champions going, Neymar used some masterful dribbling to throw off defender Efe Ambrose with his change of rhythm before cutting a pass back into the box for Pedro to direct home in the 40th. The Brazil forward was able to tap home his first goal since Nov. 10 four minutes later after Alexis Sanchez lifted a ball over Celtics defence to meet Marc Montoyas run, and the Spanish fullback slid it back for an easy goal. Neymar showed no problems handling Barcelonas slick combination capabilities as he backheeled to Xavi Hernandez who returned on to his run through the defence, and Neymar sent a rising shot into the corner as he slipped to the ground in the 48th. "I wouldnt say some players gave up but it certainly looked that way at times," said Celtic coach Neil Lennon. "A lot of half-hearted performances and, as a manager, that was the most disappointing aspect of the whole game." Ambrose was caught out again in the 58th. Neymars stepover created space before he used his other foot to slide the ball through the big defenders legs, get into the box and then beat Forster. Neymar nearly had a fourth in the 65th as he beat the offside trap to go in alone on Forster, only to dabble too long looking for a shot and his run collided with Pedro, who took a shot that was saved. Forster could only watch as Tello, who returned from injury to replace Sanchez, tried a shot that deflected high and into goal in the 72nd minute. "I hope, with this game tonight, that weve put to rest any doubts about our play," Pedro said. Barcelona, which rested Andres Iniesta, rebounded from a 2-1 loss to Ajax to finish top of the standings with 13 points. AC Milan also advanced after drawing 0-0 against Ajax to finish second. "Whats important is weve overcome two straight losses and that can change things for us as we concentrate on the league," Neymar said after taking his season goal tally to seven.
