They earned around £13.4million from the TV deal for British clubs in the competition. As Champions of Scotland they were entitled to 10 per cent of the overall pot.

United, meanwhile, will only receive £10.4million as they reached the group stages by winning the Europa League. As a result, they are only entitled to TV money from the knockout stages.
