CELTIC manager Ange Postecoglou is likely to be selecting from an unchanged group of players for Thursday’s Europa League clash away to Bayer Leverkusen.

The Hoops boss reported no fresh injury concerns since last Saturday’s Premier Sports Cup semi-final win over St Johnstone.

Postecoglou explained that Tom Rogic and Carl Starfelt are close to a return but will not feature in Germany, while Giorgos Giakoumakis is still struggling with a knee problem.

Postecoglou has no plan to be conservative.

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.”
