Strachan wary of Milan

Celtic boss Gordon Strachan has warned his side not to underestimate AC Milan ahead of their Champions League clash on Tuesday.
Strachan has rubbished suggestions that the current side that has been languishing in mid-table in their domestic league is not as formidable as Milan teams of the past.
Milan suffered a points deduction at the start of the season following the match-fixing scandal that hit Italy and the Bhoys chief claims that and the threat of relegation to Serie B is behind their recent domestic malaise.
"The trauma that they had to go through at the end of last year affected their start to the season," he said.
"But the stuff I watched them play recently was good. They look strong.
"We will need resilience. We can pass the ball, create chances and work hard for each other. We will need everything.
"We need energy and pace, to have no fear when playing and common sense when defending."
