Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has spoken to ITV News about an incident involving Slavia Prague player Ondrej Kudela during their Europa League clash last month.

Kamara claimed he was racially abused by Kudela during their last-16 match in Glasgow on March 18.

Speaking for the first time since the incident, the 25-year-old told ITV News Scotland Correspondent Peter Smith that he felt “ashamed” and “humiliated” after receiving the alleged abuse from a fellow professional.

Kudela has denied the allegations against him and claims Kamara assaulted him after the game. Slavia Prague have submitted their own official complaint with Police Scotland, who are investigating both claims.

The 34-year-old Czech Republic international has been provisionally suspended by UEFA, who have opened disciplinary proceeding.

In a statement, UEFA said: "In accordance... the CEDB [ethics and disciplinary body] today decided to provisionally suspend Mr Ondrej Kudela for the next UEFA club competition match for which he would otherwise be eligible...

"Further information about this case will be made available once the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has taken a decision in due course."

Kudela is due to miss Slavia Prague’s Europa League game against Arsenal later this week due to illness
