ANGE POSTECOGLOU has hailed Gavin Strachan after his hilarious laptop scene in Celtic's annual Christmas advert.

The Hoops coach was the star of the show as he showed off his laptop to fellow coaches John Kennedy, Stevie Woods and Stephen McManus.

Strachan shows the trio his screen with tactics on it before they burst into laughter.

Postecoglou was asked about the famous laptop in his press conference today and he issued the following response: “I’m not surprised he’s taken star billing.

"It’s a very important part of our set-up here, and that’s all I’ll say about it!”

Postecoglou is adamant his team must take a bold approach in Thursday’s crucial Europa League match away to Bayer Leverkusen.

Depending what happens in the other Group G match between Real Betis and Ferencvaros, the Hoops are likely to require a win in Germany to keep their hopes alive of qualifying for the knockout phase.

Postecoglou knows it is a formidable test against opponents who won 4-0 at Celtic Park almost two months ago, but – with his team unbeaten in nine matches since then – the bullish Australian has no intention of adopting a safety-first mindset.

He said: “We’ll only learn from the game if we play our football. You’ll learn absolutely nothing if you go out there and shy away from it. We can go and be conservative, try and hold on, try and survive, but if we do that we’ll learn nothing.

“All you learn is that you’re inferior and you don’t believe you can be any better. The only way we’ll learn anything in this game is if we go out there and take the game to them. That may be a painful lesson for us all but ultimately it’s a better way for us to find out.

“It may not be a painful lesson, it may show that we’re making a hell of a lot of progress. I’d rather go there and find out about ourselves than just go there and try to survive. That’s not the way you develop or grow as a team. If we want to get to these levels, we’ve got to use these games as a measuring stick and the only way to get measured is to go out and put yourself out there.”
