Celtic are set to pocket around £14.5million in total from their European exploits so far this season, with the potential to increase that tally depending on their knockout stage success.
According to Football Insider, Celtic have already landed a £9.5million windfall from their Champions League and Europa League qualifiers, as well as from topping Group E.
The Hoops will also receive a further £5million from “matchday, commercial and merchandise income,” as well as TV money, taking the total to around £14.5million thus far.

The European windfall is certainly a huge boost for Celtic, and the total will clearly increase depending on how far the Hoops go in the knockout stages of the Europa League.
With top spot secured, Neil Lennon’s side will be looking to end the group stage with another victory to continue their impressive form and maximise their earnings on matchday six.
The result against CFR Cluj is likely to have a huge impact on the rest of the group, with just three points separating the Romanian champions with Lazio in third.
If Lazio beat Rennes and Celtic see off Cluj, the Serie A side will go through, but if Dan Petrescu’s men avoid defeat against the Hoops then they will progress as one of the group stage’s surprise teams.
