Man City ace Toure won't celebrate if he scores against Barcelona

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure says he won't celebrate if he scores against Champions League opponents Barcelona.

Toure will face his former club as City bid to overturn a two-goal first-leg deficit from their Champions League last-16 clash.

"If I score in the second leg of the Champions League I will not celebrate out of respect," 30-year-old Toure said.

"The people of Barcelona supported me in my career as a Barca player and I could not celebrate a goal in Camp Nou. I am very grateful to the fans.

"There was disappointment in the team after losing to Barcelona. It is normal, but a winner must always think of the positives.

"If the opponent plays better I must say. Barcelona were better than us in the first leg win and it is normal."
