Rangers were knocked out of the European League after losing 2-0 to Slavia Prague last night, but the racist abuse suffered by midfielder Glenn Camara made coach Steven Gerrard even more disappointed.
Apparently, the Rangers player was subjected to racist abuse by a Slavia Prague player, and Gerrard revealed during the post-match pressure that he would stand with his player and deal with the situation.
He also claimed that he fully believes in Camara’s account of events and hopes that UEFA will handle this situation properly.
Gerard He said on the club’s official website: “I feel angry, it’s hard to describe what I’m feeling right now because I know Glenn and I trust him 100 percent which is very frustrating. There’s a lot going on about football, and a Slavic player caused this, and it also escalated the situation further.” Because immediately all the fans join in and once again the racism grows and grows. Something has to happen quickly, that’s over me, but 100 percent whatever happens, I’m standing next to Glenn Camara. “
According to Rangers player, Slavia’s Ondrej Kudela racially assaulted him while covering his mouth during an altercation. The Slavia player denied any such allegations but did admit to swearing in over the Rangers.
Gerrard believed that something had to happen quickly as racism continued to rise in the game.
Meanwhile, Camara wasn’t the only Rangers player to be racially abused last night.
Striker Kimar Rove has been subjected to racist abuse on Instagram as well. The Rangers striker was sent off after a terrifying intervention on a Slavia goalkeeper and was subjected to a racist attack on social media after the match.
In response to the abuse of Rove, Director of Rangers She said: “It escalates from the situation, from a football point of view, we have not had any complaints that we raised our hands and were beaten by the better team on two legs. Kemar deserved the red card, if he went with his head, the situation might be different but some things are higher than football.” At the moment, I don’t even feel like talking about football at the moment. “
