I had a few requests to prepare some more financial fact sheets for: (a) the two major Scottish clubs, namely Celtic and Rangers; (b) and Swansea City. Hope you find them useful #CelticFC #RangersFC #Swans
#CelticFC have been profitable for the last 4 years, helped by good profits from player sales. Revenue fell in 2019, due to not qualifying for Champions League group stage. Low debt, high cash balance, declining net transfer spend. Highest revenue, wages and profit in Scotland.
#RangersFC have lost money in last 5 years, partly due to low profits from player sales. However, revenue has more than tripled since 2015, driven by improved performance in Europe. Largest loss, debt and transfer spend in Scotland in 2019. Wages up to £34m (65% of turnover).

Ex islamistisk kriger, ex-nazist blandt talerne. Men også en af mine favorit formidlere af (terror)forskning Anja Dahlgard-Nielsen.
Timingen r tilfældig, men alligevel relevant,dagens hændelser in mente #dkpol
Så er vi igang.
Nåede det i sidste øjeblik. Havde glemt fodboldsbesættelse af området omkring Rådhuspladsen. #CelticFC
På scenen lige nu en nazist, islamist og venstreekstremist.
Alle sammen ex!

Arsenal are on course to confirm the €80m club-record signing of Ivory Coast international Nicolas Pepe from Lille later this week. The 24-year-old winger/forward has arrived in London & will undergo a medical today before signing a five-year contract at the Emirates #AFC #LOSC
Arsenal in talks with number of clubs over Shkodran Mustafi exit. 27yo (contract until 2021) wants to stay + prove himself. But #AFC want permanent or loan departure. Also hope to bolster central defence pre-deadline & retain interest in Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney #CelticFC
Arsenal technical director Edu met with the Stade Rennes president + the representative of Laurent Koscielny in London yesterday. Talks between #AFC & suitors continue in a bid to resolve Koscielny’s future. The 33yo captain does not anticipate playing for the Gunners again #SRFC

Thanks to my good chum @BillRockSport for pointing me to the publication of #DundeeFC accounts yesterday. Income up 12.5% in what was a fairly good season for most Scottish clubs, whose total income of other 8 who've reported was less than that of #CelticFC
Main cost for clubs is wages & #DundeeFC had 7.4% increase. Paying £78 wages for every £100 of income. Speaking to @Deloitte recently & they said UEFA is concerned at any club where wages/income is greater than 70% so all clubs in SFL okay apart from Dundee & #RangersFC
#DundeeFC made losses of £18,000 a week last season pre player sales, which reduced losses by £530k. Most clubs lose money in SPFL & rely on owners and occasional player sales to underwrite the losses

Rangers income up 82% in first half of season due to 7 extra Europa Cup games, Celtic income down 30% due to not qualifying for Champions League. Gap narrowed from £52.1m to £14.7m #RangersFC #CelticFC
Rangers profit increased by £4.5m & Celtic's fell by £17.5m July-Dec 2018 due to UEFA competition issues mentioned above. Gap fell from £24.8m to £2.8m. Expect Rangers profit to fall in second half of year as no UEFA income. #RangersFC #CelticFC
Rangers profit from player sales up £1.2m to £3.8m. Sale of Dembele meant Celtic's profit on player sales up from £0.5m to £17.6m. #RangersFC #CelticFC

As the Champions League reaches the last 16 and the Europa League the last 32, I took a quick look at the latest available revenue and wages data for those clubs still in the competition. Some analysis in the following thread.
Five clubs in Champions League last 16 have over half a billion revenue, led by the Spanish giants: Real Madrid £665m, Barcelona £612m, #MUFC £590m, Bayern Munich £557m & #MCFC £500m. Other English clubs: #LFC £455m & #THFC £379m. Lowest revenue by far at Ajax £81m & Porto £94m.
Barcelona £431m and Real Madrid £350m again have the highest wage bills (even after excluding other sports), followed by #MUFC £296m. Then come 3 clubs in a narrow range: Bayern Munich £268m, #LFC £263m and #MCFC £260m. #THFC £127m is 2016/17 figure. Ajax wages only £47m.

Celtic’s 2016/17 accounts provide evidence of financial dominance domestically, but also highlight reliance on the Champions League and the widening gap to the richer European clubs. Some thoughts in the following thread #CelticFC #Celtic
Celtic’s profit increased from £0.5m to £6.9m, as revenue grew by 74% (£38.6m) from £52.0m to £90.6m, largely due to the additional income generated from qualifying for the group stage of the Champions League, but all revenue streams were higher #CelticFC
Multimedia & other commercial activities rose £22.3m to £36.6m, due to Champions League money & increased sponsorship; football & stadium operations was up £12.4m to £37.6m (season ticket sales plus CL); and merchandising up £3.9m to £16.5m as 3 new kits were launched #CelticFC
