The Scottish champions made more in the first half of the current season than Rangers did all last season.

However, their revenue is not expected to reach the same level in the second part of the season as Celtic will play fewer matches, while TV rights income from UEFA is also expected to decrease.

Celtic's pre-tax profit rose by 30 per cent.

Celtic cemented their Scottish dominance in the first half of the season, both on and off the pitch, as the club reported turnover exceeding that of Rangers' for the whole of last season.

Celtic's revenue stood at £53.3 million for the period ending 31st December 2019, while Rangers' total revenue for the 2018/19 season stood at £53.2 million. The club beat Rangers to the Betfred Cup title in December and are seven points clear of Steven Gerrard's men, though Rangers have a game in hand.
