Kudela could face Scottish justice over racism claims


GLASGOW: Slavia Prague defender Ondrej Kudela could face a court case in Scotland over allegation­s he racially abused Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara after Scottish police confirmed Thursday they had sent a report to the national prosecutio­n service.

Kudela received a 10-match ban from UEFA on Wednesday but risks up to six months in prison if he is found guilty of the offence in the Scottish courts.

Kudela denies he racially abused Kamara after cupping his hand at the end of a Europa League last 16 game at Ibrox on March 18 and addressing the Finland midfielder.

Kamara, who insisted Kudela had racially abused him, was handed a three-match ban for attacking the Slavia player after the game which Slavia won 20 to give them a 3-1 victory on aggregate.

He has also been reported to prosecutor­s over the allegation he punched Kudela in the tunnel.
