EPL Results push £6 million bonus and loss for Celtic and Sevco

Last weekend was a crucial one in the title race, The Rangers played for an hour with 10 men and were able to win 3-1 with the help of a nonsensical penalty, Celtic held their nerve and saw out a game we dominated from the start but only wrapped up late.

In England, there were also 2 results which have major financial implications for both Celtic and the Ibrox team, Bournemouth got a 98th minute goal with Ryan Christie playing the entire game against league leaders Fulham.

This edges the former Celt closer to the English Premier League where an add on bonus of £2 million awaits Celtic should they go up.

Bournemouth have played 42 games and are on 78 points, Huddersfield are just 2 points behind but have played 2 more games whilst Forrest are 5 behind having also played 42 games.

2 more wins for Bournemouth will almost certainly see them promoted.

At the other end of the table it is a tale of woe for young Nathan Patterson who moved for a princely sum in January.

Soon after Rafa was sacked and he has found himself frozen out by Lampard, regardless, the add ons Sevco desperately want are in the balance, it will be interesting if the appearances for the club were written as in the EPL or in any competition.

The add ons have been stated to be as high as £4 million pounds with it reported that his initial fee was around £11.5 million, regardless with Everton in the zone, no additional finance will be heading to Govan should Burnley hold their nerve.

These are the teams that can still mathematically go down.

It is more than likely that Leeds, Burnley and Everton are the teams who are indeed fighting for survival.

Slippy looks happy at 15th in the table.

Everton have: Chelsea H, Leicester A, WATFORD A, BRENTFORD H, CRYSTAL PALACE H and Arsenal away, I have put the teams they have a realistic chance of beating in capitals.

Burnley have: WATFORD A, ASTON VILLA H, Tottenham A, ASTON VILLA A, NEWCASTLE H, whilst they have a match less they have 4 games against teams who are still threatened with relegation.

Young Patterson may well find himself in the Championship next year, a competition which swallows teams and keeps them below for years.

At the same time, Christie might well find himself in the EPL after just one season below, Swansea A tomorrow followed by Blackburn A then Forrest and Millwall at home will round off their season.

Lastly it will be interesting if Riley McGree or Boro post any patter when their stay in the Championship is confirmed in a few weeks, not that we care, O’Riley has fit in just fine.
