#AceScotsmansReport – Feb.13: #Celtic interim results: Ian Bankier frustrated at European knockout#Celtic’s sale of Virgil van Dijk contributes to a pre-tax profit in their interim results but the club predict a dip in revenue @ShaunyCeltic
The figure for the six months to 31 December is an increase of £5.1m from 2014, helped in part by the £13m sale of Virgil van Dijk to Southampton.
Revenue is up 0.3% to £31.4m but the club expect a dip in the coming months with no further European matches this season and fewer home games.
“Our performance in Europe this season has been the cause of considerable frustration,” said chair Ian Bankier.
The Scottish Premiership leaders have increased investment in their playing squad, spending £6.1m on Scott Allan, Logan Bailly, Carlton Cole, Ryan Christie, Nadir Ciftci, Saidy Janko and Jozo Simunovic last summer.
