Celtic manager Gordon Strachan will not heap pressure on Aiden McGeady to unlock the AC Milan defence in tonight´s Champions League clash at Parkhead.

In the recent absence of midfield talisman Shunsuke Nakamura, who is struggling to make the game with a knee injury, the 21-year-old Republic of Ireland wide man has assumed the responsibility as main playmaker for the Scottish champions.

And Strachan said: "We´ve got players who can win games. What we don´t do is put pressure on players and say ´you win the game yourself´. There might not be any opportunities for him to use his brilliance. You have to wait and wait and if we can give our players who can win games the opportunity then you must take it."
