Ondrej Kolar responds to Rangers forward Kemar Roofe
Slavia Praha keeper Ondrej Kolar has destroyed Rangers forward Kemar Roofe, claiming he is still yet to apologise over the clash.
The Bears attacker was sent off in the Europa League clash after accidentally catching the stopper with a high boot, something he has questioned.
Kolar also shared messages of hate from the Ibrox faithful, and they are surely from a small handful, who overstepped the line.
Speaking via the Daily Record, Kolar admitted what he would do if he was ever to meet Roofe again later in his career or even after retirement.
“I read what he said,” he said. “He said he was first to the ball, but he didn’t add that he kicked it out of my hand, collided with my leg and hit me on the head.
“If I ever met him again I’d say nothing. I’d wait for him to see if he apologised and asked about my health.

“I waited for Roofe to write me a message on Instagram for example. Instead, I read hate messages from Rangers fans, ‘he should have kicked your head in’, ‘he should have broken your spine’.”
Roofe did come out and admit that he would never go out to intentionally hurt a player, and surely, Kolar will recognise that.
Of course, the damage was serious after the clash, and he is obviously angered by that, but to claim a player had come out and known what he was doing, is too far.
On top of that, we do have to address the hate messages from the Ibrox faithful, and admit that should these have been sent, that is way too far.
No one will ever wish injury on another player, and Kolar has taken this to heart, with this whole Slavia Praha drama taking away from the seriousness of other incidents.
