Antoine Greizmann celebrates scoring Barcelona goal with glitter

Antoine Griezmann opened his account for Barcelona with a two-goal brace against Real Betis on Sunday.

Griezmann scored goals either side of half-time but he celebrated his opener by running to the corner flag and grabbing some glitter before throwing it up in the air.

Griezmann started up front for Barcelona in the absence of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez and Barca manager Ernesto Valverde said that the French forward is starting to fit in better with his new teammates at the Nou Camp.

"He’s fitting in better every day," said Valverde.

"We want him to participate a lot in the game. We know if he plays with the ball a lot he can be very decisive. He wasn’t as involved as we would have liked at San Mames, but it’s our duty to get our forwards more involved."

Barcelona have been linked with a return for Neymar but Valverde insists that he's still a PSG player for the moment.

"I know this is a popular subject, there’s always a lot of expectation on our club in the transfer window," he added.

"There are players like Neymar who cause a lot of expectation but he’s at another club. It’s not boring certainly but I can’t say anything about this. We’ll see what happens. At the moment he’s a PSG player and we should be more worried about the game tomorrow."
