Audio From The Racist Incident In Rangers Slavia Prague Game Emerges

The footage from Rangers vs Slavia Prague shows exactly what happened in the alleged racist incident between Glen Kamara and Ondrej Kudela.

There were ugly scenes at Ibrox on Thursday evening as Kamara claimed he was racially abused by Kudela during the Europa League last 16 second leg.

It led to a heated scuffle between the two sides as the Glasgow side understandably reacted with anger towards the Slavia player.

Footage from the game clearly shows Kudela whisper something into the Finnish player's ear, covering up his mouth, which sparks the Rangers player off.

Whilst captain Connor Goldson chased the offending player, Bongani Zungu tells the referee that the Prague player used the word 'monkey' when talking to Kamara.

After the match, Gers' boss Steven Gerrard gave an impassioned interview, backing his players. "I 100 per cent believe what he is saying in terms of the accusation," the former England captain told BT Sport.

"Other players around him heard it so I will stand toe-to-toe with Glen Kamara and I'll deal with this however Glen wants to deal with it.

"I am proud of all my players, tonight showing solidarity and from the top of this club to the bottom we stand with the players. This situation is over to UEFA now. I just hope it doesn't get brushed under the carpet."

"'I feel angry. It's extremely disappointing. There is too much of it happening around football.

"Something needs to happen quickly. That is above me. But 100 per cent I stand beside Glen Kamara, whatever happens going forward.

"UEFA will take this upon them I'm sure they will speak to both players and we will let other people deal with it. All I can confirm is that my player tells me he was racially abused.

"...This will be taken out of my hands now and dealt with by UEFA. I just hope with all my heart that people deal with it because that situation was not normal. If I wanted to say something to you on a football pitch, why do I need to cover my mouth and go to the ear?"
