Gio’s admission that the SPL is number one this season is bang on, but as we say it carries a slight caveat of prioritising the CL until we get to the group, then considering it a bonus thereafter and 100% focusing on domestic affairs.

See, getting to the group stage carries not only its weight in gold of around £40M+ but getting to the playoff as well gifts £4.5M so beating Union Saint will offer Rangers a windfall in itself, one double the amount getting to the UEL group stage earns.

So these things have to be priority for August.

But in the greater picture, 56 is all that matters this season – ONCE we get to UCL group stage. Hopefully we do.

If we don’t make it, and end up in the UEL, again, it would be the league as priority.

To simplify, once our European destiny is clear mid-August, that’s when we can completely focus on the league, unequivocally.

Because winning the league back off Celtic is the base level we need, we must regain our title and secure 56.

We have a squad that can do it.

So of course the league is priority this season, but let’s hope we can make it priority while we enjoy well over £45M from making the group stage of the UCL.

Could be nice times ahead.

  1. £4.5m for getting to the next CL qualifier is just crazy. That effectively pays for the transfers of Colak, Matondo and Lovelace with a fair chunk of change left over. It highlights the riches available to us if we can reach the group stages and how it could transform our club. Unfortunately it also highlights how unfair the system is for the clubs that don’t make it. I can’t help feeling that UEFA would be better served by spreading that money more widely to clubs that are really struggling instead of stuffing more money into the pockets of elite clubs that don’t really need it.
