'He's celebrated as many La Liga wins as Ronaldo!' Messi's son steals show at Barca party (VIDEO)

'He's celebrated as many La Liga wins as Ronaldo!' Messi's son steals show at Barca party (VIDEO)

Lionel Messi clinched the La Liga title for Barcelona on Saturday but the heartwarming festivities with his sons stole the show - with social media users joking they had celebrated more titles wins that Cristiano Ronaldo.

Argentine maestro Messi added a tenth La Liga title to his collection by scoring the only goal of the game against Levante, coming on as a half-time substitute to deliver a third straight Spanish title to the Catalan club. 

Barca were presented the coveted La Liga trophy following the final whistle at Camp Nou, where there was a carnival atmosphere among the players and the 90,000-strong crowd.

Defensive stalwart Gerard Pique kicked off a Mexican wave in the stands, Luis Suarez celebrated while cradling baby son Lauturo, and hero Messi was joined on the hallowed turf by his young sons Mateo and Ciro. 

Footage of the mini Messis clad in Barcelona shirts joyously running into their father's arms instantly melted the hearts of social media users, especially as they attempted in vain to lift the La Liga trophy, which dwarfed them in size.

Some hardcore Barca fans took the opportunity to have a dig at Messi rival Cristiano Ronaldo, claiming that Messi's youngest son Ciro had already celebrated as many title wins as Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese won a host of honors with the Madrid, including four Champions League titles but his only two La Liga domestic title victories came in 2012 and 2017.

Ronaldo nevertheless celebrated his own league win when Juventus tied up an eighth successive Serie A title with a win over Fiorentina and, on the same day Messi and his teammates wrapped up La Liga, the 34-year-old netted his 600th club goal by scoring the equalizer in a 1-1 draw with Inter Milan at San Siro.

The wins for the two superstars means it is the first time both have been league champions in the same season since 2009.
