Celtic beat Southampton 2-0 in Claus Lundekvam's testimonial, while Andy Cole made his Nottingham Forest debut against Offenbach Kickers.

Saints stalwart Lundekvam was unable to mark his special occasion with a victory as SPL champions Celtic scored in each half.

Chris Killen scored after 26 minutes following good work by Scott McDonald, and Barry Robson netted a penalty midway through the second half after Georgios Samaras was brought down.

Matt Le Tissier came on for a late cameo for Southampton as new Celtic signing Samaras almost added a third goal.

Veteran striker Cole almost netted on his bow for Forest when he struck the crossbar in a 2-1 win over Offenbach Kickers.

Forest's goals came courtesy of Garath McCleary and Arron Davies, while Rob Earnshaw and Guy Moussi also played.

SPL side Aberdeen suffered a 4-0 defeat at Peterhead, with Craig Gunn, Martin Bavidge, Bobby Mann and Konrad Kozminski on target for the Second Division club.

Wolves secured a 4-1 victory at non-league Chasetown in their latest friendly, with Elliott Bennett and Stephen Elliott grabbing two goals apiece.

Plymouth Argyle twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at Kidderminster Harriers, with Jamie Mackie heading the Championship club level on each occasion.

Bristol City's pre-season trip to Portugal concluded with a 1-0 defeat to Rushden & Diamonds, with Dean McDonald scoring the game's only goal.

Cheltenham Town's fifth friendly of pre-season ended with a 0-0 draw against Telford.

Kidderminster Harriers 2 Plymouth Argyle 2

Offenbach Kickers 1 Nottingham Forest 2
