Celta duo heap praise on Navas

Celta Vigo forwards Nolito and Iago Aspas have hailed Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas after his heroic display denied them any points at the weekend.

Celta went into the La Liga clash level on points with Los Blancos and were looking to go top of the table at the expense of Rafael Benitez's side, but goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo and Danilo secured a 3-1 victory.

Celta's solitary goal was one to be savoured, the highly-rated Nolito smashing a rasping drive past Navas, but the Spanish forward claims had his shot been any lower, the Costa Rican would've had a clean sheet to his name.

"I watched it again [his goal] on the telly. Just as well it went where it did, any lower and he stops that too," Nolito said in the post-match interview.

Aspas reiterated his team-mate's comments, saying: "A performance like that in goal like that makes you want to give up and go home."
