Rangers could recoup up to £9m as part of the sale of Champions League tickets – but fans are clear they are expecting to Board to deliver in the transfer market.
There is much debate surrounding Rangers’ decision to price their three game Group A match package at £180 in some sections of the stadium.
This is the club’s first foray into the Champions League in 12 years and the Ibrox Board are clearly eager to cash in on the eagerness of supporters to attend the matches against Napoli, Liverpool and Ajax.
Ticket prices for the three match package start at £150 and go up to £180 dependent on what part of the stadium fans want to sit in.
There are four different sections in total, with the orange section starting at £150, dark blue at £165, red at £174 and light blue at £180.

Rangers fans asked to cough up for Champions League tickets
The package will be offered to season ticket holders between the 29th of August and 4th of September, with the payment for those on the CCCS scheme coming out on September 1st.
Seat mover requests will then be handled on September 5th and 6th before the MyGers sale for any remaining tickets opens on September 7th.
Rangers will then put any remaining tickets on sale to the general public from the 12th of September.
Rangers’ first Champions League match back at Ibrox will be Napoli (13/09), before the club welcome Liverpool (12/10) and Ajax (01/11) to Glasgow.
According to football finance expert Kieran Maguire, a combination of both match and hospitality packages could see Rangers recoup up to a further £9m from the Champions League clashes.
With millions already in the bank from qualification for the tournament, the run to the Europa League Final and the sales of Nathan Patterson, Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey, expectation is rising in the support.
If Rangers want to maximise their opportunity in the Champions League that’s fine, but they need to deliver for fans in the transfer market and on the pitch too.
Speaking of Rangers’ transfer business, the club are reportedly pulling out of the race to sign one Euro U21 international.
