SCOTTISH clubs could earn millions from European football this season, if they can progress to the group stages of continental competitons.

Reaching the group stages of the Champions League would result in Celtic banking £13 million, with a further £2.4 million on offer for each win and every draw being rewarded with £800,000.

UEFA have announced that clubs will be given £8.5 million for reaching the last 16 of Europe's premier club competition, while reaching the quarter-finals will result in a further £9.5 million.

Even if Celtic do not reach the group stages of the Champions League, the Scottish champions will bank £4.5 million if they can reach the final play-off round before the group stages.
