The Scottish Daily Express has been caught cooking the books as they present another Ibrox good news sorry to their readership. 

Taking things a few steps too far Sports Editor Lindsay Herron has splashed with a £50m windfall to sit alongside the incredible sums about to be offered for Calvin Bassey. 

Earlier today Swiss Ramble provided a precise breakdown of UEFA prize money for this season with £17m going to Ibrox and £9m to Celtic. 

Ticket money and any performance bonuses from sponsors aren’t included but in raw terms it provides an accurate breakdown of the payments heading to Glasgow from UEFA. 

Herron reports: 

Scottish Express Sport had already revealed that the club that Gio van Bronckhorst’s side had pulled in £15.5 million in UEFA prize money for making it all the way to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium where they agonisingly lost on penalties to Eintracht Frankfurt. 

This included all payments for wins, draws and incremental progression in the tournament – as well as just under £1million for the club’s 10-year coefficient – and Rangers have only played in Europe for the last five years. 

It ha now been revealed that the TV market share money will come in at a massive £17million, according to reputable football finance blogger Swiss Ramble. 

Having quoted the ‘reputable football finance blogger’ it is now time to serve up humble pie and inform Express readers that the £17m quoted was originally covered in the £15.5m windfall.

    The ticket money from 4 extra home games could add anything from £6.5 to £8M to that figure.
    Regardless the figure has to be set against ongoing annual losses of £8M to £12M.
