Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets dismisses claims that he and his teammate Neymar are 'divers.'

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets has claimed that it is unfair to label him and his teammate Neymar as 'divers.'

The Spain international has been accused of play-acting in the past, while Neymar was criticised by Celtic boss Neil Lennon for his part in Scott Brown's dismissal during the Blaugrana's recent win in Glasgow.

"Play-acting? It's not play-acting, it's being smart," Busquets told Spanish radio station Cadena COPE.

"It's a debate we shouldn't be having because that's not the real issue. It's all too easy to label people."

Busquets has made eight appearances for Barcelona this season.

Celtic's Scott Brown is shown a straight red card in the second half against Barcelona during their Champions League group match on October 1, 2013
