The French side used Twitter to hit back at the PSG midfielder following his comments after his side's loss to Real Madrid

Dijon saw the funny side of Adrien Rabiot's comments after the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder lamented his team's loss to Real Madrid by highlighting their eight-goal rout of the French club.

Ligue 1 giants PSG took to the Santiago Bernabeu with great hope but left the Spanish capital 3-1 losers in the opening leg of their last-16 tie against the Champions League holders on Wednesday.

Rabiot, who opened the scoring in the 33rd minute before Cristiano Ronaldo's double inspired a comeback, was particularly scathing of the collapse

As part of his scathing remarks , the midfielder aimed a jibe at Dijon, who the Paris outfit smashed 8-0 back in January.

"It's great to put eight goals past Dijon, but it is in these matches that you have to make it count," he told  beIN SPORTS.   

PSG superstar Neymar scored four goals in the relentless demolition of the Ligue 1 outfit, who currently sit 34 points back of the top spot in league table.

Despite that demolition, which included three goals tacked on after the hour mark, Dijon showed some good humour on Wednesday, taking their chance to snipe back at Rabiot via Twitter. 

The club wrote: "We did everything to give PSG confidence before Real Madrid... And this is how they thank us!"

 PSG, who are 12 points clear in the league, welcome Madrid to Parc des Princes on March 6 as they look to reach the quarter-finals.
