Jim White offered words of encouragement to Rangers star Glen Kamara after he broke his silence on the alleged racist abuse he suffered against Slavia Prague.
In an interview with ITV, Kamara explained what was said to him by Slavia Prague’s Ondrej Kudela.
He then expressed his immediate response, both physically and emotionally, describing his anger, sadness and humiliation.

White commended Kamara’s “courageous words” [via Twitter], who waited almost three weeks before participating in a television interview to tell his side of the story.
There has been a lot of outcry and disagreement from the Czech press over the alleged racist incident.
Kamara’s lawyer, Aamer Anwar, has also publicly backed his client and called on UEFA to take strong action against Kudela, via Sky Sports.
UEFA are still yet to publish findings from an investigation but Kamara raised a pertinent point in his interview – the fact teammate Bongani Zungu heard what was said.
The midfielder is a key witness in the case and hopefully Slavia Prague defender Simon Deli explains what he heard, as he was also in earshot.
Two players backing up what Kamara alleges is surely impossible to ignore, and will surely lead to the justice Kamara deserves.
The 25-year-old deserves immense praise for the way he has dealt with the entire situation – nobody should have to endure the abuse he suffered.
Also, it is good to see White fighting his corner and offering him support publicly.
The journalist has covered the incident diligently on his talkSPORT show and often has Anwar on to voice his fight for justice.
