Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has revealed the extent of the alleged racial abuse he received from a Slavia Prague player during Thursday’s Europa League tie.
Kamara has claimed that Slavia defender Ondrej Kudela covered his mouth with his hand before racially abusing him in Rangers’ 2-0 defeat in their last-16, second leg tie at Ibrox.
In a statement released on Slavia’s English language website earlier on Friday, centre-back Ondrej Kudela admitted he had used offensive language but denied using racist language.
In a statement released through his lawyer, Kamara said: “There is no place for racism or any form of bigotry in football. Since [the] summer many of us have taken the knee in solidarity with those who have lost their lives to racial violence.
“If UEFA genuinely wants to “show racism the red card”, then it’s time to stop the tokenism and take a zero-tolerance approach.
“As a player I do not expect myself, nor any other to have to tolerate racial hatred on or off the pitch in 2021.
