Police Scotland have confirmed that they are investigating “incidents” of racist abuse at Ibrox following the Europa League clash with Rangers and Slavia Prague last Thursday.
In a brief update posted on Facebook, Greater Glasgow Division confirmed they are investigating “incidents of alleged racial abuse” as well as a report of an assault at Ibrox last Thursday, saying: “We can confirm we are investigating incidents of alleged racial abuse and a reported assault following the match between Rangers and Slavia Prague at Ibrox on Thursday, 18 March, 2021. Officers are liaising with both clubs and enquiries are continuing.”
Rangers star Glen Kamara has accused Slavia Prague’s Ondrej Kudela of calling him a ‘f*****g monkey’ during the ill-tempered clash, with the Czech’s levelling an allegation of assault which police confirmed yesterday was being investigated.
The scenes have sparked a massive reaction across football as clubs and individuals have given their backing to the Rangers midfielder after the disgusting scenes at Ibrox.
The abuse continued on social media with Slavia fans sharing an utterly vile, racist banner while also bombarding the social media pages of black Rangers players, including Kamara and Kemar Roofe.
UEFA have also launched an investigation and have been implored to take the strongest possible action.
Rangers fans have praised a senior Ger for a ‘sensational’ display at Parkhead and hammered a Celtic player for a ‘bitter’ post-match comment.
