Celtic will be looking to make it back to the Champions League group stages.

If they are able to do so they'll receive an additional £341k on top of the £251k they'll already get from competing in the first round.

A further £431k will be due if they reach the third round. Should they exit at the play-off stage, they'll receive €5m before dropping into the Europa League. If they get to the group stage, though, they'll earn a massive £13.7 million.

That's an incredible sum of money, but they would stand to make much more due to match-day income and the incentives for picking up points in the group stage. It's roughly a £800,000 prize for a draw and £2.4m for a win.

Another £8.5m will be paid out if they reach the knockout stages.

The full breakdown...

First qualifying round - €280,000 (£251,759)

Second qualifying round - €380,000 (£341,640)

Third qualifying round - €480,000 (£431,546)

Play-off round exit - €5m (£4,495,275)

Reach group stage - €15.25m (£13.7m)
