But his most recent foray away with the Huuhkajat has been overshadowed by allegations of racial abuse in the country’s 2-0 UEFA Nations League victory over Montenegro.

In a statement, the Finnish national team confirmed that UEFA have launched an investigation into the matter but stopped short of providing details or commenting on the situation.

“UEFA has started an investigation into the racist behaviour of a Montenegrin player towards Glen Kamara,” reads the statement.

“Finland won the UEFA Nations League match played in Podgorica with a score of 0-2.

“Neither the Finnish Football Federation nor the Finnish team will comment on the matter for the time being. We will find out more details.”

Finland confirm UEFA investigation into Glen Kamara abuse

Obviously we can’t speculate without having any official details but if there has been an incidence of racist abuse – and we’ve no reason to believe there hasn’t been – it shames the entire game on the European continent.

Rangers fans will also be feeling for Glen Kamara who will once again be catapulted into the press regarding issues of racism after experiencing a similar situation playing in the blue of the Ibrox club.

Czech defender Ondrej Kudela was banned for 10 matches after being found guilty of racially abusing Glen Kamara in Rangers 0-2 UEFA Europa League Last 16 second leg defeat to Slavia Prague in 2021.

Needless to say, all of our thoughts go to Glen Kamara at this time and everyone at Rangers will be quick to lend their support to one of the club’s own.

On a completely unrelated note, there has also been some talk in the press this week regarding Kamara’s future at Rangers with the ex-Arsenal midfielder finding himself in and out of the side.

According to Football Insider, Rangers are ready to move Glen Kamara on this January with the likes of Leeds United and Aston Villa interested suitors.

This comes after a deadline day move to Ligue 1 Nice seemingly collapsed despite late interest from the French side in the Finland international.

Meanwhile, here are the three former Rangers players who’ve lifted the World Cup.
