If Rangers can overcome Frankfurt to lift the Europa League then not only will a pot one spot in the Champions League beckon, but so will a shot at the Super Cup.

The competition is played at the beginning of each European season and involves both the Champions League winner and the winner of the Europa League.

A prestigious trophy in its own right, the winner gets to take the prize home whilst supporters get another big trip to somewhere in Europe; this time Helsinki in Finland.

The Super Cup will be contested between either Rangers or Frankfurt and Liverpool or Real Madrid but all eyes will be on securing the Europa League first.

The financial benefits of winning this tournament have been poured over significantly; Rangers already stand to make a fortune for reaching the final with some claiming between tournament victory and Champions League qualification, victory is worth up to £90m to the Bears [Scottish Daily Express].

But should the club get their hands on the Europa League trophy, something which will stand as a monumental achievement in Scottish football history and probably the biggest one in our entire 150 years, a shot at the Super Cup beckons.

UEFA Super Cup chance an understated bonus is Rangers win Europa League

Contesting the Super Cup is for sure just an added bonus but the competition comes with its own financial benefits.

Both competitors in the competition are guaranteed £3.3m for taking part in the game with the winner making an extra £940k [Metro].

This is more than what Rangers would rake in for winning the Scottish Premiership and a welcome extra guaranteed boost should the club beat Frankfurt.

Excitement is bubbling ahead of the Europa League Final and fans are beginning to dream about the possibility of winning the match.

But it’s worth noting that whilst Rangers fear no-one, they are not the favourites for the clash with Frankfurt being backed by the bookmakers ahead of the game.

That hasn’t stopped thousands travelling as expectation builds ahead of the game with Seville certainly needing to brace itself for a monumental influx of both Scottish and German fans.
