Celtic have beaten Trabzonspor 3-1 in their opening game of the Antalya Cup in Turkey.

The Hoops are through to the final of the midseason cup thanks to strikes from Teemu Pukki and Amido Balde either side of an own-goal from Sol Bamba.

Pukki opened the scoring in the 32nd minute with a neat finish from 18 yards before Bamba diverted Emilio Izaguirre’s cross into his own net five minutes later.

Trabzonspor were back in the contest when Emra Gural netted prior to half-time but Balde managed to see off their challenge when he added a third for the Hoops with a sublime 20-yard effort in the 57th minute.

Neil Lennon’s side will now take on the winner of Friday’s clash between Ajax and Galatasaray in Sunday’s final.
