Rangers may have received fee from Celtic opponents FC Midtjylland - Kenny
Rangers may have received a fee from FC Midtjylland after they used the facilities at Auchenhowie before their clash with Celtic.
That is according to ex-Sheffield United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after the match on Tuesday 20th July.
Celtic and the Danish champions drew 1-1 in the second round Champions League qualifier as red cards were handed out to both teams.
As revealed by Glasgow Live on 18th July, Rangers let Midtjylland use their training complex in the run-up to the game.
The two clubs are understood to have formed a relationship after facing each other in the Europa League qualifiers in 2019.
Kenny speculated that money will have changed hands as part of the arrangement.

“This sort of thing does happen,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“When I was at Sheffield United, there were many teams that would play Sheffield Wednesday and come and use our training ground.
“You need the facilities and I’m sure they’ll be paying for it. Back in the day, it used to be a case of if we’d let someone from London use our ground and then if we’re ever in London, they’ll let us use theirs.
“But with this, it’s a little different because they are from another country.”
Celtic learned on 19th July that they could face either PSV Eindhoven or Galatasary in the next qualifying round.
They must first overcome Midtjylland in the second leg on 28th July
