    Neymar got the better of him on and off the park. How can you kick the * out of him, laugh in a guys face and square him up and then at the end of the game try to get his shirt?! Needs to be grounded asap

    Didn't see him trying to get his shirt just Neymar refusing to shake hands..

    He's got the right mentality anyway. For play to him. One of the few positives to take from last night.

    He was laughing at the most expensive footballer of all time still being a diving cheating wee * even when 3 goals up. He didn't try to get his shirt, just to shake his hand, which Neymar refused cause he is a classless *.

    He was brought in to mark Neymar in the biggest game of his career. He didn't do to badly tbh. He was not scared to show what he thought about the diving cheating *, Just like lustig, and all he did at the whistle was go to shake his hand and Neymar refused. Was great to see the young lad trying to get the crowd up too

    Looking forward to seeing his 6th start for the hoops. Thought he came out of last night with lots of credit particularly second half. Other than the second leg he will probably not face a better team or a more difficult opponent again. Hoping he gets plenty more game time to build upon.

    Aye I agree it was stupid by Neymar but I'm sure if you got kicked about a park and getting lip of an 18 year old when your 3-0 up, you would certainly let him know about it.

    From what I saw it was no where near as bad as he made out. Paddy is only 20 and seemed to be getting hacked down just as much. Sinclair too.

    Neymar is a classless *. You think he would've learned something from Messi instead of going down in tears anytime someone came near him. Footballers like him are * fannies and give the sport a bad name.

    Honestly, not shaking an 18 year old boys hand after a game because he dared stand up to the mighty Neymar is everything wrong with football. It's the Neymar tournament, he's to get all the goals so it can be sold to Brazil and China. Who is Ralston to try and 'compete'.

    Actually, the fact some fans are shocked he dare treat Neymar like he would treat Doigie Imrie is what is wrong with football.

    So hes to treat him like a we king neymar saviour of the world? Nah. He done brilliant. Show no respect during a game. Its the only way to go as a defender or you get *. He got it back off neymar just as much.

    A class player forgets all that * after 90 min whistle and realises its part of the game. He done his job. Was probably told to get in his head. Job done if hes a we scared * who wont shake hands.

    * neymar and * the oil money thats ruining the game.

    Aye and a there is a level of respect in football as well. I have no problem if he's going to square Neymar up if he's actually competing with him on the pitch, not throwing the dummy when he is getting out-classed. Also think you forgot about that Motta challenge as well, if that was one of them on scott brown we would be fuming.

    I didn't forget about anything mate. (Except to quote, apparently!)

    It was obviously a foul but let's not make out Ralston tried to break his leg or something like that ffs.

    Brown gets a cheeky knock like that week in and week out, he still shakes hands afterwards. It's football.

    I haven't watched it again but from where I was sitting Neymar was doing his usual 3 tumbles every time someone tackled him. Wasn't he eventually booked for diving ?

    But aye, you're right. Ralston should've apologised after the first tackle and sat down and let King Neymar of the Champions League rattle in as many as possible.

    The guys a *, but if you want his name on the back of a Brazil jersey you go right ahead.

    He stays up pretty well as far as I've ever seen. Videos of him genuinely being hacked down cynically and kept on going.

    At worst, at least against us he's always been a class act, especially considering he's twice the player Neymar is.

    More disappointed in his interactions with Neymar, rather than his defending against him.

    He wasn't all that bad, Neymar wasn't all that good and I doubt Lustig being at RB (with Boyata at CB), would of made much of a difference.

    Seeing him laughing at Neymar was just cringe. You're 18 y/o, making your UCL debut against a phenomenal player. Even if he doesn't deserve it, respect should be shown.

    I think he will too. One of the only positives to come out of last night was the experience gained for our younger players.

    Recently, I've seen it creep into his game. Barca is full of diving *, so I can see where Neymar's learnt it from..
