Drew Judge-Clark put Celtic ahead with an unconverted try but Scott Woods replied to equaliser before Liam Walmsley — who was later sin-binned for dissent — restored the home side’s advantage with a second try.

Joe Edwards, Billy Yarrow, Danny Lee and Judge-Clark nipped over for Celtic after the break, with Charlie Heaton kicking three goals.

Gateshead grabbed a consolation try by Richard Moody, which Zach Clarke converted, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Celtic signing off in style.
