Celtic beat Glory 2-0

7:29 am on 10 July 2011

Scottish football giants Celtic made amends for last week's 1-0 pre-season loss to Central Coast with a convincing 2-0 triumph over a new-look Perth Glory at nib Stadium on Saturday night.

The Glory, featuring six new players in their starting XI, struggled to create clear-cut chances throughout the night despite the industrious work of New Zealand international Shane Smeltz, who was subbed off at half-time.

Goals to Gary Hooper and defender Charlie Mulgrew either side of the break sealed the win for Celtic, who round out their Australian pre-season tour with a match against Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park on Wednesday.
