Win over HJK worth at least £6m to Celtic


Celtic will receive £1.65m from the Uefa revenue distribution system for participating in the Champions League play-off round against Helsingborgs.  Add to that around £1m gate money and the guarantee of at least three Europa League games, with Uefa distribution money, you can calculate the value of Wednesday’s win over HJK Helsinki as no less than £6m (all figures are net of vat).  Quite a prize for one game.

Compare this to the projected income from newco The Rangers, who claimed to have sold 25,000 season tickets.  If all sales were at full adult prices (£258 in vat), net income would be £5.375m.

Should Celtic overcome Helsingborgs and reach the Champions League group stage, the club will return to a remarkably strong financial footing.

    Do you meet any of them, speak to any of them ? Every single one I’ve encountered is angry, hostile and in denial. They are removed from normality. Frothing at the mouth and howling at the moon for a fair number of them is accurate.



    For decades they have been able to cheat others but more tellingly themselves too. How the Hell could they countenance anything but continue the charade, that is their “sporting” idyll ?

    …..However, as usual, you are absolutely SPOT ON with the remainder of your post ……. We cannot allow this nonsense to continue ……. Rankers are deed……it is pathetic that the MSM etc are ‘in denial’ …… I just wish the Liquidators would hurry up formalise their demise, then we have the FTT / undeclared contracts etc ….i honestly can’t see newco surviving either….as Paul states, £5m is not going to cover their costs, and the banks are not an option…

    like watching a car crash, but regardless of how many watch, I expect the msm to lie about viewing figures, they must keep up the charade at all costs.


    do you think the commentry team get paid more than the combined Peterhead team

    Come on Peterhead. Sevco the gift that just keeps on giving.


    The game between 2 giants of world football – Celtic V Real Madrid is being streamed on some ‘iffy’ sites tis evening just in case anyone is interested. However if one can one should be a good bhoy and subscribe to Channel 67.

    With Alistair it’s more likely to be the weight of Korma.

  11. The SFA/SPL/SFL are humiliating the whole of Scottish football by allowing games involving a corrupt, corpse of a club to be broadcast nationally.



    Obviously, the SNP have no respect for the image of the country that is being portrayed.



    Sky Sports should be cancelled by every right thinking person in the country…..and Ireland.

  12. ANTHONY Stokes accepted a presentation from the Irish Famine Memorial Committee on behalf of Celtic following a poignant and moving ceremony in Philadelphia on Friday.



    As Celtic supporters pour into the city of brotherly love for today´s glamour friendly with Real Madrid a group of fans held a rally and blessing at the city´s Irish memorial at Penn´s Landing.



    The remarkable sculpture, which was built almost 10 years ago, vividly brings to life the tragic human history of An Gorta Mor.



    While it commemorates the misery and suffering of the millions who died and were forced to flee their homeland, it also recognises the great contribution Irish immigrants have made in the new world.



    After an opening speech by Celtic supporter and event organiser, Seamus Cummins, Marist Brother, Brice Byczynski, spoke about Celtic´s founder Brother Walfrid and offered a blessing.



    John Donovan of the Irish Famine Committee then presented lithograph prints of the original design of the Philadelphia monument to Stokes, Brother Brice and journalist Phil Mac Giolla Bhain.



    There were also speeches from Phil Mac Giolla Bhain, and Kevin Boyle, a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, before the event concluded with a rendetion of the Fields of Athenry.

    Sky cancelled,wish I could cancel BBC Scotland. When was the last time they featured a 3rd division team on the highlights. Another part of Scotlands shame.

  18. jack regan,



    I read a post on here last night, linking to an article where the BBC Director General issued a directive to his News staff, not to be over patriotic towards the Brits,and that there are other countries competing at the Olympics.



    Oh, that similar sentiments would be expressed at BBC Scotland.
