Campbell: Rangers in line for £1.3m transfer boost amid 'Battle of Britain'

Rangers will receive a huge transfer budget boost if they reach the Europa League quarter-finals where their British rivals could await them.

That is according to ex-Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider ahead of Rangers’ round-of-16 second-leg clash with Slavia Prague on Thursday evening.

UEFA data shows that quarter-finalists receive approximately £1.3million and Football Insider revealed that Rangers have already pocketed £8m in guaranteed European prize money in 2020-21.

Top-ups for the campaign mean the Glasgow giants have already secured a stunning £20m jackpot this season.

Rangers go into the clash with the six-time Czech First League champions at Ibrox having drawn the first leg 1-1.

Campbell highlights that the potential prize money could give Rangers a leg-up in the transfer market going into the summer.

He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “It will give them a big financial boost and give them a lift in the transfer market, 100 per cent. It’s huge for the football club.

“They can get to the quarter-finals and I just think: ‘Wow, Steven Gerrard is doing a fantastic job.’

“They could meet Arsenal, Spurs or Manchester United if they get through their tie. It could be a Battle of Britain type scenario.”

Manchester United face AC Milan in the second leg of their round-of-16 tie after a 1-1 draw in the first, while Tottenham take a 2-0 aggregate lead into their clash with Dinamo Zagreb.

Arsenal meanwhile hope to advance past Olympiakos after a 3-1 victory over the current Greek champions at the Emirates last Thursday.

In other news, Filip Helander and Joe Aribo may be axed from the starting XI to face Slavia Prague.
