Grant Holt's late strike gave Norwich a narrow 1-0 victory over Celtic in their pre-season friendly at Parkhead.

After a night of close calls at both ends, the Canaries captain had the easiest of tasks in the 89th minute when the ball fell to him a few yards from goal, after Hoops keeper Fraser Forster had blocked a drive from Jonathan Howson, to slam the ball into the net.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon was in Iceland to see KR Reykjavik play HJK Helsinki in the Champions League qualifiers, with the Finnish side winning 2-1 for a 9-1 aggregate success which sets up a trip to Parkhead next week in the first leg of the third qualifying round.
