Glen Kamara, centre, confronts Ondrej Kudela over the incident

Slavia Prague’s Ondrej Kudela has been banned for 10 matches by Uefa after being found guilty of racially abusing Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara. Kamara has also been suspended for three games over his reaction to the incident.

Kamara was incensed after Kudela whispered into his ear during a Europa League tie at Ibrox on 18 March. Kamara claimed he was called a “f*****g monkey”, something Kudela denied.

Kamara’s account was supported by Rangers team-mate Bongani Zungu and Uefa’s control, ethics and disciplinary body (CEDB) has now found Kudela guilty of using racist language.

But Finland international Kamara has also been banned for three matches after being found guilty of assaulting Kudela in the tunnel after the game.

The body’s full written reasons will be published at a later stage, and both sanctions are open to appeal.
