The Finnish international was involved in a late flashpoint with two minutes to play in the Europa League last 16 match against Slavia Prague when defender Ondrej Kudela approached, and spoke into the Rangers player’s ear while covering his mouth.
It is not yet clear what was said but angry scenes immediately followed with nearby Bongani Zungu and then captain Conor Goldson seeking out the Czech side’s player while Kamara appealed to the referee.
Former Rangers defender Alan Hutton, working as BT Sport pundit said he heard Kamara claim to the match officials. He said: “Glen Kamara shouted ‘racist, racist’ – we don’t know what has been said but if that’s the case it needs to be looked at because there is no room for that in football at all.”
David Weir added: “It doesn’t look great and he’s trying to hide what he’s saying so you wonder what he is saying. The reaction of Glen Kamara is an extreme reaction so it is something that has upset him. Connor Goldson has asked what has been said and then he’s reacted – it’s not something we want to see in football.”
Both Kudela and Goldson were booked but Rangers manager Steven Gerard was later seen back out on the pitch in deep dialogue with Slavia’s backroom team long after the final whistle where he made reference to the mouth-covering gesture of Kudela which sparked the scenes.
Rangers went out of the Europa League 2-0 on the night and 3-1 on aggregate.
