WATCH: Messi pays great tribute to Maradona after scoring against Osasuna

Lionel Messi paid special tribute to soccer icon Diego Maradona after scoring in Barcelona's 4-0 win over Osasuna on Sunday evening. 

The Argentine was named in the matchday squad after missing the Champions League fixture in midweek and scored Barca's last goal of the day. 

Messi then celebrated the goal by removing his shirt, revealing Newell's Old Boys kit with the number 10 on the back, which was famously won by Diego Maradona, who, just like Messi started his career at the club. 

The celebrations was also reminiscent of Maradona's famous celebration. 

Maradona died on Wednesday night after suffering a heart attack, two weeks after leaving hospital. 

Barcelona's three other goals were scored by Braithwaite, Griezmann, and Coutinho.
