Champions League football could be set for a return to Celtic Park next season, with Ange Postecoglou’s side just two games away from delivering the Premiership title.

Many positive aspects come with qualifying for one of the best tournaments in the world, which will see the Hoops go up against top sides from all across Europe.

Celtic also gains a massive financial advantage from making the group stages.

The financial football account @Swissramble has recently broken down what the club could be in line to make, and it is exciting reading for any supporter.

Celtic will already have earned around £30 million just from entering the competition due to the money that will be coming our way from UEFA – made up of TV cash, prize money, participation money and co-efficient bonus.

And that is before considering things such as heavier performance-based bonuses and gate receipts, which could also bring in significant fees at Parkhead.

It has been an excellent season on the pitch for Ange Postecoglou and his group of players. But, it could also be about to become even better off the pitch.

Not only will this money aid the club, but it could also contribute massively to the Celtic manager’s transfer budget going into the summer window.

Postecoglou will be looking to add more strength and depth across his squad as they prepare for the challenges of being a Champions League side.

It is an extremely exciting time to be a Celtic fan, with the prospect of European nights at Parkhead returning next season.

The Celtic boss has proven his worth in the dugout. So, it is time for the Celtic board to back him in the transfer market in order for this side to kick on and go to the next level.
