Rangers: Kieran Maguire assesses potential European windfall

Rangers: Kieran Maguire assesses potential European windfall -Rangers News

Football finance expert Kieran Maguire has been assessing the potential financial implications should Glasgow Rangers go on to win the Europa League this season. 

The lowdown: Seville calling

The Teddy Bears have been on a wild ride to book their place in the final on 18 May in Seville.

They will take on Eintracht Frankfurt, the conquerors of Premier League outfit West Ham, in the showpiece, having already overcome two Bundesliga clubs in Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig to reach the decider in the south of Spain.

However, victory in Seville would mean more than just a first major European honour in 50 years for the club…

The latest: Major financial opportunity for Rangers

Speaking to Football Insider, Maguire – a regular contributor for Sky Sports – has explained how the Europa League winners would be set to receive a huge influx of additional funds.

The finance expert said: “You get £1.5m for participating in the Super Cup, which they will do if they win the trophy.

“You will also get bonuses from sponsors. So that might take you to £6m or £7m. These figures are all significant.

“You then get an extra £30m from being in the Champions League next season, so overall we’re talking about a £40m football match.”

The verdict: Added importance

Whilst the players and indeed Van Bronckhorst will be fully focused on the task in hand from an on-field perspective, the Ibrox hierarchy will no doubt have one eye on the potential windfall should the Gers be successful in Seville.

Any incoming funds will be of particular importance this summer, as Old Firm rivals Celtic are set to lift the Premiership title, and in turn book their own spot in next season’s Champions League with all the associated benefits.

Can Rangers win the Europa League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

While there is no need for wholesale squad changes at Rangers, new signings will likely be necessary, and an additional £40m in the club’s coffers would undoubtedly be a huge boost to the summer budget.
