An image has now emerged of how Slavia Prague goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar’s face was left behind after a nasty challenge from Kemar Roofe during Rangers’ removal from his side in the Europa League.
In the 60th minute of the second leg, Roofe attempted to hang onto the end of a long ball, the forward leaping to control the ball as Kolar rushed to recover.
Of course, Roofe’s leg was completely outstretched and his challenge to win the ball eventually let his shoes cut the Slavia Prague goalkeeper face.
A direct red card was rightfully shown by the referee, while Kolar had to be sent off the pitch after the incident.
An image has now gone viral of Kolar’s face in the dressing room after Slavia knocked out Rangers, the Czech international ended up with a huge cut on his forehead, as well as one under his left eye.

Fortunately, Roofe’s boot failed to cut through Kolar’s eye.
Leon Balogun was also sent off for Rangers just over 10 minutes after the incident, a pretty dramatic and explosive outing for the Scottish European champions.
