This is an interesting bit of information from journalist Mo Chatra, who works with our friends at Anfield Index and writes for the Mirror.
He has explained how Celtic’s defeat in the Champions League last night actually benefits Liverpool financially.
This is because the TV money for British clubs in the competition is now split between four clubs and not five.
Celtic's failure to get through to the group stages of the Champions League is good news for Liverpool.
The substantial TV Pool money for British clubs will now be split over four clubs instead of five so the Reds stand to make several million pounds extra CL money.

The Scottish champions crashed out to AEK Athens last night and Brendan Rodgers is being slaughtered as a result.
Interestingly, Celtic’s exit also means we’re definitely going to be in Pot 3, which means we’ll theoretically get a tougher draw in the group stages…
The reality is though every other side in Europe should be fearing us, and we’ll enjoy the European away days just like we always do.
We hope we draw Real Madrid first up so we can get revenge for some of the injustices that were done in Ukraine, actually.
