Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic have announced a net profit of £15.2million for the first half of the 2018-19 season as, on Tuesday, the Parkhead side released their interim report for the six months to December 31, 2018.

The report showed how the Hoops' revenue decreased by 30 per cent to £50million, mainly as a result of the club's failure to qualify for the Champions League group stages, but the sale of Moussa Dembele to Lyon on the final day of August yielded a surplus of £17.6million in the transfer market.

In addition, the report shows how profit from trading fell from £23.7million to £6.2million compared with the same six-month period in 2017, but the French striker's departure resulted in only a £2million deficit in total profits.

 

Furthermore, the reigning Scottish champions reported that cash in the bank at the turn of the year was £38.6million, though seven January signings were made, three of which were loan deals, with free transfers from the United States.

Celtic shared the article containing the highlights, a statement from chairman Iain Bankier and a further link to the full interim report, in a Twitter post on Tuesday.

Here is how some Hoops fans reacted on the social media platform to the news:
