Celtic win final tour match

Celtic finished their three-match tour of Australia with a 1-0 win over Melbourne Victory at Ammi Park.

Perth Glory 0-2 Celtic

A second-half goal from substitute Scott Brown was enough to give Neil Lennon's side their second victory Down Under.

Celtic, skippered by their Greece striker Georgios Samaras as a tribute to the big Greek community in the city, were worthy of their win in what was another highly-competitive friendly match.

And had it not been for home goalkeeper Tando Velaphi, the margin of victory for Lennon's side would have been greater.

In front of a crowd of 20,794, many of whom were backing the Bhoys, 24-year-old Velaphi pulled off a string of fine saves to thwart Celtic, only to be beaten by Brown's 78th-minute drive.

He twice denied Samaras in the first half and his save from Charlie Mulgrew's free-kick just after the break, when he tipped the ball over the bar, was particularly impressive.
