Spurs 2, Celtic 0

All the action from our 2-0 win against Celtic in the opening match of the Feyenoord Jubileum Tournament in Rotterdam on Friday.

THE ACTION AS IT HAPPENED...

Full-time: Spurs 2-0 Celtic

88 mins: CLOSE-SPURS: Bent nearly makes it three with a stinging shot which hits the side netting.

83 mins: Double substitution for Spurs, Zokora and Modric off, Gunter and O'Hara on.

79 mins: GOAL-SPURS: Bentley scores on his first appearance, an easy tap-in at the back post after great work from Bale. Spurs 2-0 Celtic

74 mins: Another Bentley cross picks out Berbatov but it just skims off his head and wide.

72 mins: CHANCE-SPURS: More good play results in Bentley cross from right to back post where Bale lunges but doesn't quite connect with header.

69 mins: Strong run from Bale to the by-line, stood up cross to back post but nobody waiting for tap-in.

68 mins: Yet more good football from Spurs released Zokora down the right but his cross just evaded Berbatov.

62 mins: King replaces Huddlestone and slots straight into defence alongside Dawson.

55 mins: Bentley's first real involvement - a beautiful ball over the top of defence for Bent, who turned and shot straight at Boruc from edge of box.

51 mins: Another promising Spurs move as Bent chased down long Huddlestone ball, played across goal, Berbatov cleverly dummied for Modric who tried to burst into the box but was just held up.

45 mins: Bale replaces Woodgate and Bentley replaces Lennon to make first Spurs appearance.

Half-time: Spurs 1-0 Celtic

42 mins: CHANCE-SPURS: Great move. Inter-play between Berbatov and Modric, who played perfect throughball for Bent but Boruc came off his line well to save at feet.

37 mins: Zokora played neat one-two with Modric on right-hand side, miss-hit cross but could have sailed in!

24 mins: GOAL-SPURS: Another goal for Bent. Latched onto a Hartley back pass, rounded the goalkeeper and finished well. Spurs 1-0 Celtic

22 mins: Zokora does well to deflect McGeady effort away for a corner, which was then cleared.

14 mins: Great footwork from Bent as he beat a defender on the edge of the box and tried to slip in Jenas. Just cut out by McManus.

10 mins: Good defending from Woodgate at the back post to keep McGeady cross away from Vennegoor of Hesselink
