Slavia Prague's Ondrej Kúdela Receives 10-Game Ban For Racially Abusing Rangers' Glen Kamara

Slavia Prague's Ondrej Kúdela has been hit with a 10-game for "racist behaviour towards" Glen Kamara.

Fully supported by manager Steven Gerrard, Kamara claimed he was racially abused by Kudela during the Europa League last 16 second leg at Ibrox.

He reacted angrily and said "he's f***ing racist" - with teammate Bongani Zungu telling the referee that the Czech Republic international used the word 'monkey'.

Both Slavia and Kudela denied the racism accusation but an official investigation has found him guilty of using a racial slur.

It means he is now suspended for a further nine games under the UEFA banner after serving a one-match suspension in the quarter final first leg against Arsenal.

Kamara, meanwhile, has been banned for three games for assaulting an opposition player.

It was reported that the Finland international had punched the man who racially abused him, while in the tunnel after the 2-0 defeat.

After the game and subsequent incident, Gerrard backed his player and urged UEFA to act.

"I 100 per cent believe what he is saying in terms of the accusation," the former England and Liverpool skipper said in an interview with 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."

Celtic skipper Scott Brown showed solidarity with Kamara when he went over to the former Arsenal youngster before the Old Firm derby.
