UEFA has launched an investigation after Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara and the club’s other black players were audibly booed by children during the Europa League clash with Sparta Prague in the Czech capital last week.

Sparta’s supporters had actually been given a stadium ban for the racist abuse of Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni back in August, with roughly 10,000 schoolchildren attending Thursday’s match in their place alongside some adult chaperones.

However, the Gers’ black players were booed throughout the match and Kamara – who was the victim of a disgusting incident of racist abuse against Sparta’s city rivals Slavia last season – was given a particularly hostile reception every time he touched the ball.

European football’s governing body has now confirmed it is investigating this latest allegation of racism, probing ‘potential discriminatory incidents’ during the 1-0 defeat for Steven Gerrard’s side.

A statement read: “In accordance with Article 31(4) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, a UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector has been appointed to conduct a disciplinary investigation regarding potential discriminatory incidents allegedly occurring during the 2021/22 UEFA Europa League group-stage match between AC Sparta Praha and Rangers FC played on 30 September 2021.
