Rangers are now eight places above Celtic in UEFA‘s club coefficient rankings. The Scottish champions are listed in 42nd, with their Old Firm rivals in 50th.
From 2024/25, after the Champions League revamp, two of the extra four qualification slots for the competition’s group stage will be awarded on coefficient ranking alone.
It means that if the Gers perform well in the Europa League or Champions League over the next few years, there is a chance of automatic qualification, even if they don’t finish top of the Scottish Premiership table.
In terms of the rest of the British clubs. Manchester City are placed second in the coefficient rankings, behind Bayern Munich at the top, with Liverpool in third, Chelsea fifth and Manchester United in eighth.
Arsenal and Tottenham are outside the top ten (in 12th and 13th respectively), with Rangers now the seventh-highest ranking British team, ahead of Celtic and Leicester (65th).
