Celtic's promising pre-season continued with a morale-boosting two goal victory over Premiership side Tottenham in the Wembley Cup.

Tony Mowbray's men won through a free header from Chris Killen and a powerful drive from Greek striker Georgios Samaras in the first half.

New Zealand hitman Killen nearly made it three just before the half time whistle, but dragged his shot just wide of the post.

While the English side had plenty of chances after the break, their Scottish counterparts managed to hold out for a deserved victory.

Captain Gary Caldwell then led his players up the 107 steps to the Royal Box at Wembley Stadium to lift the inaugural cup.

Celtic boss Mowbray will be delighted with the performance of his side after making ten changes for the match, with the likes of Wilo Flood, Koki Mizuno and Paddy McCourt performing well.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp will be disappointed with the performance of his team so far, who drew with European champions 1-1 just two days ago. His side contained star players such as Luka Modric and £17million man Darren Bent.

The Hoops came into the match on form themselves, albeit against lesser opposition, with a 5-0 demolition of Egyptian side Al Ahly.
