Celtic made £22.2m from UEFA for their participation in the 2012/13 Champions League.

Neil Lennon's side's financial reward for a run to the last 16 of the competition has been confirmed by the governing body, as it announced a total payout to clubs of £778.4m last season.

The total payout to Celtic was £1.1m less than initially projected because of a fall in the total amount of money paid into the UK market pool compared to 2011/12.

English clubs shared a UK pot of £74.5m between them in 2011/12 in the absence of a Scottish club in the group stage but that TV pot fell to £69.4m in 2012/13, with the Scottish entrant receiving a predetermined 10% slice.

With the UK market pool having stood at a stronger £80.1m in 2010/11, that means Celtic received £1m less than Rangers did in TV money for participating in the competition two years previously.

The reigning Scottish champions received a total broadcast payout of £6,930,000 from UEFA for 2012/13.

Celtic also received an untouched £13.4m in prize money from UEFA for their run to the last 16, adding to the £1.8m they also received for featuring in the play-off round.

The final figures do not include gate receipts received by Celtic in the competition.
