Some clubs expected the SPL to receive an extra £1million in solidarity payments after Celtic beat Spartak Moscow to qualify for the knockout stages but the league confirmed on Thursday that was not the case.
The SPL's solidarity payments rose from £500,000 to £1.5million when Celtic reached the group stages but that is as far as it will go. The money will be distributed equally among the other 11 clubs but will not be paid out until next summer, possibly as late as September.
Celtic's success was welcomed by SPL managers though as a boost to the game, if not financially. Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels, whose team face Celtic on Saturday, said: I'm delighted that they've made it and hopefully the country will get behind them.
"We should be accommodating our European representatives a bit more. Celtic played last night and they have to play at lunchtime on Saturday. I don't think that's fair. It puts a bit of an advantage our way."
Hearts manager John McGlynn added: "You've got to give a lot of credit to Neil Lennon and his players; fantastic achievement.
"They've come through a lot and it's great for Scottish football. It helps the co-efficient and it can only be good for Scottish football.
"We take enough knocks. I think we should be trying to pat ourselves on the back in some form that one of the SPL clubs have managed to achieve to get to the last 16 of the Champions League.
"A lot of other clubs in the SPL can take great satisfaction from the fact they've managed to take points at Parkhead against them."
