Celtic Champions League Money
« on: October 19, 2017, 02:00:22 PM »
I know this will be a stupid question but why should we and the other ten sides in SPFL benefit financially from Celtic's success in Champions League??  Doesn't make sense for me.

It's to aid the pretence that the Champions League is good for all of football and not just the big boys, so that the smaller clubs and associations don't put up too much fuss as the ladder to the top gets pulled away from them more and more each year.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

And to perpetuate the myth other clubs just suck at the arse-cheeks tit!
