Celtic FC beat Sanna Nyassi's Seattle Sounders 2-1 in weekend friendly, as the squad prepares for the upcoming Scottish Premier League season.

The Sounders who have so far laid what looks like an average performance in the Major League Soccer were one man down during the weekend cracker in front of 45,631 fans at Qwest Field, according to club's website.

Greek striker Georgios Samaras raced onto a through-ball and into the box. There, Sounders goalkeeper Terry Boss caught his leg, but Samaras managed to scuff the ball into the net on his way down.

Referee Paul Ward called back the goal and issued Boss a red card and seconds later Samaras coolly dispatched to mark his goal.

Jennings only had the chance to make one routine save before Celtic struck again.

Ten-man Seattle reacted immediately. David Estrada entered the pitch and stroked from distance with his first touch which swerved into the net.

The Sounders who are 10th and 19 points in the 16- team MLS will host Colorado Rapids on Monday July 26.
