Slavia Prague defender Ondřej Kúdela has been banned for 10 matches by UEFA after the governing body’s investigation into allegations of the player’s “racist behavior” towards Rangers’ midfielder Glen Kamara during the sides’ UEFA Europa League meeting at Ibrox stadium last month. Kúdela was seen saying something into Kamara’s ear with his hand covering his mouth. Rangers manager Steven Gerrard spoke to the media where he confirmed that Kamara told him that he was racially abused by Kúdela. Kamara claimed Kúdela said to him: “You’re a monkey, you’re a f**king monkey and you know you are.”

In a statement on Wednesday, Slavia Prague’s President Jaroslav Tvrdík said the club respected UEFA’s decision. “I am taking positive steps to prevent such a situation from happening in our club ever again.” At the same time UEFA has also handed Kamara a three-game ban “for assaulting another player” in relation to the same March 18 match. European football’s governing body also announced that it has banned Rangers striker Kemar Roofe for four matches “for dangerously assaulting another player.”
