Celtic and Rangers have excelled in the Europa League this season with both clubs enjoying a number of famous wins in the competition. 

And while the wins have seen Scotland rise to 15th in the overall nation coefficient, both Celtic and Rangers have boosted their own coefficient which could improve their overall seeding in future qualification. 

The club coefficients are based on the results of clubs competing in the five previous seasons of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. The rankings determine the seeding of each club in relevant UEFA competition draws.

Club coefficient is based on the results of each individual club competing in the current UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League season which combine with those of the previous four seasons to determine the seeding for each club in all UEFA competition draws.

This is not the same as the national coefficient which is an aggregate sum based on the results of each association's clubs in the five previous UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League seasons

According to official figures on the UEFA site, Celtic have amassed 9.000 points so far, surpassing their previous season 5-year high, while Rangers sit on 6.000. Celtic obtained some points from UEFA Champions League qualification before gaining more points in the Europa League qualification and group stage, while Rangers amassed all their points in the Europa League.

In the national coefficient, Scotland now have a ranking of 26.375 and have jumped above Cyprus, who have a 26.250 ranking, thanks to the latest Europa League results.

If they finish the 2019/20 campaign in 15th position or higher they will get an extra club into Champions League qualifying and another club into Europa League qualifying in the 2021/22 season.
