Money destroyed it mate. Celtic got over £8million for getting knocked out of the CL at the first time of asking, we will get less than that for winning the UEFA cup.
Same as the Premier league money and the chance to qualify for the CL has destroyed the FA cup. Better to win nothing and come 4th than win a major cup? How can that be right?
Like most things in sport now, money is king and EVERYONE has to bow down to our new god.
Celtic got the income they're due. What use is it to them? Parade it on top of a bus? The amount they got wouldn't buy us a decent player nowadays. I don't know how much is going for winning the other competition, but I'm sure it's worth less than what City paid out to us for just one player this summer.
Europe isn't all about money, it's about winning. It's about winning in Munich, or winning in Madrid, or winning in Rome, or even in Russia. The money lasts a few days. The memories last a lifetime.
