UEFA investigates possible racist incidents in the Sparta Prague-Rangers match

LONDON: UEFA announced on Tuesday in a statement that they opened disciplinary measures against “potential racist incidents” during Rangers’ 1-0 defeat to Sparta Prague in Europa League last week. Rangers midfielder Glenn Kamara was booed on Thursday at the Letna Stadium, whose stands were initially closed by UEFA after Sparta fans had racially slammed against Monaco’s Aurelien Chuamini during a Champions League qualifying round match. UEFA then allowed 10,000 children to attend the stands for the confrontation of the Scottish champions, but the screams came to a head in the second half when Kamara was sent off, according to press reports. On Friday, Sparta Prague claimed the allegations were not true, while Czech Foreign Minister Jakob Kolhanek said he summoned the British ambassador for charges against mainly schoolchildren. Gerrard’s manager Steven Gerrard called for tougher sanctions against Sparta Prague, while Kamara’s lawyer Amer Anwar said Kolhank’s government should take advantage of opportunities to “tackle racism deep within their country. “. In March, Finn Kamara complained of racial abuse by Andrei Kudela of Slavia Prague in a Europa League match and UEFA banned the Czech defender for 10 matches. (Reuters)
