Rangers fans launch protest against UEFA over racism

A large group of Rangers fans have protested against UEFA and their handling of racism.

The Gers face Sparta Prague in the Europa League tonight, and in the reverse fixture, Glen Kamara and others were subjected to racial abuse.

However, UEFA decided there was insufficient evidence, and Sparta got away with it just as others have in the past.

This led to a banner slamming UEFA being placed opposite Ibrox last night before the Bears host Sparta [Scottish Sun].

Rangers fans make their feelings known.

Kamara has been the subject of racist abuse in two games this year while representing the Gers, and though Ondrej Kudela was banned for using a racist slur, the lack of action over the Sparta fans leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.

It was clear that the Finland international was being particularly targeted throughout, but UEFA allowed the Czech team to get away with it.

You would imagine that it is going to be an intense atmosphere tonight as the Gers home crowd look to roar their side on to a big win.

This incident involving Kamara and the fact that it will be Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s first game in charge should contribute to a red-hot atmosphere at Ibrox.

Hopefully, the players respond in the correct way and condemn Sparta to a defeat.

We can’t wait for this one to get started, and Ibrox should be electric after all this off-the-field nonsense.

However, hopefully, UEFA listen to the Gers fans and take more appropriate action going forward.
