Finland’s stars have worn t-shirts to support Rangers star Glen Kamara as they took part in their media obligations ahead of the upcoming World Cup qualifiers – with former Celtic striker Teemu Puuki insisting Kamara done “exactly what he should have” by highlighting it.
The Finnish national team’s Twitter account shared images of a number of players wearing the shirts as they showed their backing to their team-mate, with Police Scotland confirming they have launched an investigation.
Kamara’s team-mates also spoke out in support of the Rangers star as they prepare to face Bosnia & Herzegovina, Ukraine and Switzerland over the next week.
“You have to eradicate stuff like that immediately. Racism does not belong anywhere,” Puuki said [Daily Record].
“The only way to get rid of it is by UEFA handing out long sanctions.
“So the wise men in charge of football who make these decisions have a chance to get rid of racism by doing the right thing.
“Glen did exactly what he should have done by highlighting what was said to him immediately.
“There is no chance he would have reacted in that way unless something very bad was said to him.
“The way he reached clearly showed their player made a racist remark.”
As well as a police investigation into the “incidents” at Ibrox, UEFA have also opened their own disciplinary proceedings as support from across football floods in for Kamara after the utterly disgusting abuse.
Rangers fans have praised a senior Ger for a ‘sensational’ display at Parkhead and hammered a Celtic player for a ‘bitter’ post-match comment.
