Rangers secure further guaranteed UCL windfall

Rangers secure further guaranteed UCL windfall

On top of securing a playoff with Dutch cracks PSV, Rangers have also pocketed another £5M.

Gaining passage to the final qualifying round in the CL is worth a completely different ball game to the UEL, with, for example, getting to the GROUP only worth about £3M in the secondary competition.

For simply getting to the playoff round of the UCL, teams earn £5M, just like that.

It’s yet more finance for the ever-bulging Ibrox coffers which have seen injections of cash the past 10 months unlike any ever witnessed in the Scottish game over such a short period of time.

Of course, winning v PSV just opens mouthwatering buckets of cash, but simply getting to them is a clean lump sum of yet more lucre.

This is the difference between UEL and UCL, and rather pinpoints the garbage Stewart Robertson spoke about how the UEL run was more lucrative than the UCL would be.

This means the revenue since selling Steven Gerrard now amounts to around about £100M and if Rangers complete the job over the next fortnight, it’s yet another £40M on top of that.

Amazing what difference a few months can make, isn’t it?
